The family line of Jesus
1A long time ago, God promised to send somebody to save us. Jesus is that person. These names are the fathers and grand-fathers of Jesus, that lived a long time before he was born. This list shows that Jesus was from the family of David. David was the big boss over the Israel people. It also shows that David was from the family of Abraham.
2This list starts with Abraham, a really long time ago. He was the father of Isaac.
Isaac was the father of Jacob.
Jacob was the father of Judah and his brothers.
3Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah. Their mother’s name was Tamar.
Perez was the father of Hezron.
Hezron was the father of Ram.
4Ram was the father of Amminadab.
Amminadab was the father of Nahshon.
Nahshon was the father of Salmon.
5Salmon was the father of Boaz. His mother’s name was Rahab.
Boaz was the father of Obed. His mother’s name was Ruth.
Obed was the father of Jesse.
6Jesse was the father of David. He was the big boss over all that mob, the Israel nation.
So in that family there were 14 fathers from Abraham to David.
David was the father of Solomon. At first Solomon’s mother was the wife of another man called Uriah.
7Solomon was the father of Riaboam.
Riaboam was the father of Abijah.
Abijah was the father of Asa.
8Asa was the father of Jehoshafat.
Jehoshafat was the father of Jehoram.
Jehoram was the father of Uzziah.
9Uzziah was the father of Jotham.
Jotham was the father of Ahaz.
Ahaz was the father of Hezekiah.
10Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh.
Manasseh was the father of Amon.
Amon was the father of Josiah.
11Josiah was the father of Jeconiah and his brothers. At that time, the soldiers from Babylon came and fought the Jewish people. The Babylon mob won, and they took the Jewish people as prisoners to their country.#2 Kings 24:14-15; 2 Chronicles 36:10; Jeremiah 27:20
So in that family there were 14 fathers from David until the time they all had to go to Babylon.
12Jeconiah was the father of Shiyaltiel.
Shiyaltiel was the father of Zerubbabel.
13Zerubbabel was the father of Abihud.
Abihud was the father of Eliakim.
Eliakim was the father of Azor.
14Azor was the father of Zadok.
Zadok was the father of Akim.
Akim was the father of Eliud.
15Eliud was the father of Eleazar.
Eleazar was the father of Matthan.
Matthan was the father of Jacob.
16Jacob was the father of Joseph. Joseph was the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus. Jesus is the Christ, the man that God promised to send to save us.
17So in that family there were 14 fathers from Abraham to David, and there were 14 fathers from David until the time they all had to go to Babylon, and there were 14 fathers from that Babylon time until the time God sent Jesus to the world.
Joseph had a dream
18This is the story about how Jesus was born. He is the man that God talked about a long time ago. God promised to send him to us.#Luke 1:27
Mary was promised to a man called Joseph, but they hadn’t slept together yet, like married people do. Then the Holy Spirit made a baby grow inside Mary. 19Joseph found out that Mary was going to have a baby, and he was not happy. He knew that the baby wasn’t his, so he wanted to leave Mary. But he was a good man, and he didn’t want to shame her. So he thought, “I will just leave her quietly, without any argument.”
20While Joseph thought about that, he went to sleep and had a dream. He saw an angel messenger from God. The angel said, “Joseph, you are from the family of David. Look, you can go ahead and marry Mary. Don’t be too frightened to do that. You see, her baby is from the Holy Spirit, not from another man. 21She will have a baby boy, and you will name him Jesus. (That name Jesus means God saves.) You see, he will save his people, so that God will not punish them for the bad things they do.”#Luke 1:31
22That all happened just like God told one of his men to write in God’s book, a long time ago. He wrote,
23“There will be a young woman that has never slept with a man, like a woman does with her husband, but she will have a baby boy.
That boy will have a special name, Immanuel. That name means God is with us.”#Isaiah 7:14; 8:8, 10
24Joseph woke up and did what God’s angel told him to do. He married Mary. 25But he did not sleep with her, like a man does with his wife, until after her son was born. And he named the baby Jesus.#Luke 2:21

The Genealogy of Jesus Christ
(Luke 3.23-38)
1The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren; 3and Judah begat Pharez and Zerah of Tamar; and Pharez begat Hezron; and Hezron begat Ram; 4and Ram begat Ammin´adab; and Ammin´adab begat Nahshon; and Nahshon begat Salmon; 5and Salmon begat Boaz of Rachab; and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6and Jesse begat David the king.
And David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uri´ah; 7and Solomon begat Rehobo´am; and Rehobo´am begat Abi´jah; and Abi´jah begat Asa; 8and Asa begat Jehosh´aphat; and Jehosh´aphat begat Jeho´ram; and Jeho´ram begat Uzzi´ah; 9and Uzzi´ah begat Jotham; and Jotham begat Ahaz; and Ahaz begat Hezeki´ah; 10and Hezeki´ah begat Manas´seh; and Manas´seh begat Amon; and Amon begat Josi´ah; 11#2 Kgs 24.14,15; 2 Chr 36.10; Jer 27.20. and Josi´ah begat Jeconi´ah and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconi´ah begat She-al´ti-el; and She-al´ti-el begat Zerub´babel; 13and Zerub´babel begat Abi´ud; and Abi´ud begat Eli´akim; and Eli´akim begat Azor; 14and Azor begat Zadok; and Zadok begat Achim; and Achim begat Eli´ud; 15and Eli´ud begat Ele-a´zar; and Ele-a´zar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
The Birth of Jesus Christ
(Luke 2.1-7)
18 # Luke 1.27. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21#Luke 1.31; Ps 130.8. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 # Isa 7.14. Behold, a virgin shall be with child,
and shall bring forth a son,
and they shall call his name Imman´u-el,
which being interpreted is, God with us. 24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25#Luke 2.21. and knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.
