The Family Line of Jesus the Messiah
1This is the family line of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2Abraham 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, and Tamar was their mother.
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, and Rahab was his mother.
Boaz was the father of Obed, and Ruth was his mother.
Obed was the father of Jesse.
6Jesse was the father of King David.
David was the father of Solomon, and his mother was Bathsheba, who had been Uriah’s wife.
7Solomon was the father of Rehoboam.
Rehoboam was the father of Abijah.
Abijah was the father of Asa.
8Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat.
Jehoshaphat 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. In their time, the Jewish people were taken into exile in Babylon.
12After the exile to Babylon, the family line continued.
Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel.
Shealtiel 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 Elihud.
15Elihud 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, who was the mother of Jesus, who is called the Messiah.
17So there were 14 generations from Abraham to David, there were 14 generations from David until the Jewish people were taken into exile in Babylon, and there were 14 generations from that time until the Messiah.
Jesus is Born to a Virgin
18This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother Mary had promised to marry a man named Joseph. But before they lived together, she became pregnant. This happened by the power of the Holy Spirit, but Joseph didn’t know that. 19He thought that Mary hadn’t been faithful to him. He wanted to follow the law of Moses and didn't want to put her to shame in public. So he planned to break up with her quietly.
20But as Joseph was thinking about this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary home as your wife. The baby inside her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She’s going to have a son, and you’re to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
22All this took place to make what the Lord had said through the prophet Isaiah come true. He’d said, 23“The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son, and he will be called Immanuel.” The name Immanuel means “God with us.”
24When Joseph got up the next morning, he did just what the angel of the Lord had commanded him to do. He took Mary home as his wife, 25but he didn’t sleep with her before she’d given birth to a son. And Joseph gave him the name Jesus.

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.
