1The book of the #Luke 3:23genealogy of Jesus Christ, #2 Sam. 7:12–16; Ps. 132:11; Is. 9:6; 11:1; Jer. 23:5; (Matt. 1:18; Luke 3:23, 31); John 7:42; Acts 2:30; (Rom. 1:3); Rev. 22:16the Son of David, #Gen. 12:3; 22:18; (Gal. 3:16)the Son of Abraham:
2#Gen. 21:2, 12Abraham begot Isaac, #Gen. 25:26; 28:14Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot #Gen. 29:35Judah and his brothers. 3#Gen. 38:27; 49:10Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, #Ruth 4:18–22; 1 Chr. 2:1–15; Matt. 1:3–6Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. 4Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. 5Salmon begot #Ruth 2:1; 4:1–13Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, 6and #1 Sam. 16:1; Is. 11:1, 10Jesse begot David the king.
#2 Sam. 7:12; 12:24; Is. 9:7David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah. 7#1 Kin. 11:43; 1 Chr. 3:10Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot #2 Chr. 11:20Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa. 8Asa begot #1 Chr. 3:10Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot #2 Kin. 15:13Uzziah. 9Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot #2 Kin. 15:38Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. 10#2 Kin. 20:21Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot #1 Kin. 13:2Josiah. 11#1 Chr. 3:15, 16Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were #2 Kin. 24:14–16; Jer. 27:20; Matt. 1:17carried away to Babylon.
12And after they were brought to Babylon, #1 Chr. 3:17Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot #Ezra 3:2; Neh. 12:1; Hag. 1:1Zerubbabel. 13Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor. 14Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud. 15Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob. 16And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of #Matt. 13:55; Mark 6:3Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.
Christ Born of Mary
18Now the #Matt. 12:46; Luke 1:27birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child #Is. 7:14; 49:5; Luke 1:35of the Holy Spirit. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting #Deut. 24:1; John 8:4, 5to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, #Luke 1:35for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21#(Is. 7:14; 9:6, 7); Luke 1:31; 2:21And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, #Luke 2:11; John 1:29; (Acts 4:12; 5:31; 13:23, 38; Rom. 5:18, 19; Col. 1:20–23)for He will save His people from their sins.”
22So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23#Is. 7:14“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
24Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25and did not know her till she had brought forth #Ex. 13:2; Luke 2:7, 21her firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus.

The Ancestors of Jesus Christ
(Lk 3.23–38)
1This is the list of the ancestors of Jesus Christ, a descendant of David, who was a descendant of Abraham.
2-6aFrom Abraham to King David, the following ancestors are listed: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judah and his brothers; then Perez and Zerah (their mother was Tamar), Hezron, Ram, Amminadab, Nahshon, Salmon, Boaz (his mother was Rahab), Obed (his mother was Ruth), Jesse, and King David.
6b-11 # 2 Kgs 24.14–15; 2 Chr 36.10; Jer 27.20 From David to the time when the people of Israel were taken into exile in Babylon, the following ancestors are listed: David, Solomon (his mother was the woman who had been Uriah's wife), Rehoboam, Abijah, Asa, Jehoshaphat, Jehoram, Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, Manasseh, Amon, Josiah, and Jehoiachin and his brothers.
12-16From the time after the exile in Babylon to the birth of Jesus, the following ancestors are listed: Jehoiachin, Shealtiel, Zerubbabel, Abiud, Eliakim, Azor, Zadok, Achim, Eliud, Eleazar, Matthan, Jacob, and Joseph, who married Mary, the mother of Jesus, who was called the Messiah.
17So then, there were fourteen generations from Abraham to David, and fourteen from David to the exile in Babylon, and fourteen from then to the birth of the Messiah.
The Birth of Jesus Christ
(Lk 2.1–7)
18 # Lk 1.27 This was how the birth of Jesus Christ took place. His mother Mary was engaged to Joseph, but before they were married, she found out that she was going to have a baby by the Holy Spirit. 19Joseph was a man who always did what was right, but he did not want to disgrace Mary publicly; so he made plans to break the engagement privately. 20While he was thinking about this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary to be your wife. For it is by the Holy Spirit that she has conceived. 21#Lk 1.31She will have a son, and you will name him Jesus — because he will save his people from their sins.”
22Now all this happened in order to make what the Lord had said through the prophet come true, 23#Is 7.14 (LXX)“A virgin will become pregnant and have a son, and he will be called Immanuel” (which means, “God is with us”).
24So when Joseph woke up, he married Mary, as the angel of the Lord had told him to do. 25#Lk 2.21But he had no sexual relations with her before she gave birth to her son. And Joseph named him Jesus.
