The Genealogy of Jesus Christ
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.

1The family tree of Jesus Christ, David’s son, Abraham’s son:
2-6Abraham had Isaac,
Isaac had Jacob,
Jacob had Judah and his brothers,
Judah had Perez and Zerah (the mother was Tamar),
Perez had Hezron,
Hezron had Aram,
Aram had Amminadab,
Amminadab had Nahshon,
Nahshon had Salmon,
Salmon had Boaz (his mother was Rahab),
Boaz had Obed (Ruth was the mother),
Obed had Jesse,
Jesse had David,
and David became king.
6-11David had Solomon (Uriah’s wife was the mother),
Solomon had Rehoboam,
Rehoboam had Abijah,
Abijah had Asa,
Asa had Jehoshaphat,
Jehoshaphat had Joram,
Joram had Uzziah,
Uzziah had Jotham,
Jotham had Ahaz,
Ahaz had Hezekiah,
Hezekiah had Manasseh,
Manasseh had Amon,
Amon had Josiah,
Josiah had Jehoiachin and his brothers,
and then the people were taken into the Babylonian exile.
12-16When the Babylonian exile ended,
Jeconiah had Shealtiel,
Shealtiel had Zerubbabel,
Zerubbabel had Abiud,
Abiud had Eliakim,
Eliakim had Azor,
Azor had Zadok,
Zadok had Achim,
Achim had Eliud,
Eliud had Eleazar,
Eleazar had Matthan,
Matthan had Jacob,
Jacob had Joseph, Mary’s husband,
the Mary who gave birth to Jesus,
the Jesus who was called Christ.
17There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David,
another fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile,
and yet another fourteen from the Babylonian exile to Christ.
The Birth of Jesus
18-19The birth of Jesus took place like this. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. Before they came to the marriage bed, Joseph discovered she was pregnant. (It was by the Holy Spirit, but he didn’t know that.) Joseph, chagrined but noble, determined to take care of things quietly so Mary would not be disgraced.
20-23While he was trying to figure a way out, he had a dream. God’s angel spoke in the dream: “Joseph, son of David, don’t hesitate to get married. Mary’s pregnancy is Spirit-conceived. God’s Holy Spirit has made her pregnant. She will bring a son to birth, and when she does, you, Joseph, will name him Jesus—‘God saves’—because he will save his people from their sins.” This would bring the prophet’s embryonic sermon to full term:
Watch for this—a virgin will get pregnant and bear a son;
They will name him Immanuel (Hebrew for “God is with us”).
24-25Then Joseph woke up. He did exactly what God’s angel commanded in the dream: He married Mary. But he did not consummate the marriage until she had the baby. He named the baby Jesus.
