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.

1A roll of the birth of Jesus Christ, son of David, son of Abraham.
2Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren,
3and Judah begat Pharez and Zarah of Tamar, and Pharez begat Hezron, and Hezron begat Ram,
4and Ram begat Amminadab, and Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon,
5and Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth, and Obed begat Jesse,
6and Jesse begat David the king. And David the king begat Solomon, of her [who had been] Uriah's,
7and Solomon begat Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begat Abijah, and Abijah begat Asa,
8and Asa begat Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begat Joram, and Joram begat Uzziah,
9and Uzziah begat Jotham, and Jotham begat Ahaz, and Ahaz begat Hezekiah,
10and Hezekiah begat Manasseh, and Manasseh begat Amon, and Amon begat Josiah,
11and Josiah begat Jeconiah and his brethren, at the Babylonian removal.
12And after the Babylonian removal, Jeconiah begat Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel,
13and Zerubbabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azor,
14and Azor begat Sadok, and Sadok begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud,
15and Eliud begat Eleazar, and Eleazar begat Matthan, and Matthan begat Jacob,
16and Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was begotten Jesus, who is named Christ.
17All the generations, therefore, from Abraham unto David [are] fourteen generations, and from David unto the Babylonian removal fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian removal unto the Christ, fourteen generations.
18And of Jesus Christ, the birth was thus: For his mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, before their coming together she was found to have conceived from the Holy Spirit,
19and Joseph her husband being righteous, and not willing to make her an example, did wish privately to send her away.
20And on his thinking of these things, lo, a messenger of the Lord in a dream appeared to him, saying, ‘Joseph, son of David, thou mayest not fear to receive Mary thy wife, for that which in her was begotten [is] of the Holy Spirit,
21and she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins.’
22And all this hath come to pass, that it may be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
23‘Lo, the virgin shall conceive, and she shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,’ which is, being interpreted ‘With us [he is] God.’
24And Joseph, having risen from the sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him, and received his wife,
25and did not know her till she brought forth her son — the first-born, and he called his name Jesus.
