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.

17So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations; and from David until the exile to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the exile to Babylon until the Messiah, fourteen generations.#2Kg 24:14; Jr 27:20; Dn 9:25–26; Mk 8:29; Ac 2:31,36,38
The Nativity of the Messiah
18The birth of Jesus Christ came about this way: After his mother Mary had been engaged#1:18 Or betrothed to Joseph, it was discovered before they came together that she was pregnant from the Holy Spirit.#Mt 12:46; Lk 1:27,35 19So her husband, Joseph, being a righteous man,#Mt 13:17; Mk 10:12; Lk 2:36; 1Co 14:35; 2Co 11:2; Gl 4:27 and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly.#Dt 22:20–24; 24:1–4; Mt 2:7; Lk 16:18; Jn 8:4–5
20But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.#2Ch 1:1; Mt 13:49; 27:19; Jn 6:20; Rm 1:3 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus,#Lk 1:31; 2:21; Jn 10:25; 1Jn 2:12 because he will save his people from their sins.”#Lk 2:11; Jn 1:29; Ac 4:12; 5:31; 13:23,38–39
22Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet:
23 See, the virgin will become pregnant
and give birth to a son,
and they will name him Immanuel,#1:23 Is 7:14
which is translated “God is with us.”#Is 7:14; Mt 21:1–4; Lk 24:44; Rm 1:2–4
24When Joseph woke up, he did as the Lord’s angel had commanded him. He married her#Mt 1:6; 13:49; Lk 1:1; 19:32; Jd 5 25but did not have sexual relations with her until she gave birth to a son.#1:25 Other mss read to her firstborn son And he named him Jesus.#Gn 4:1,17; Ex 13:2; Jdg 11:39; 1Sm 1:19; Lk 2:7,21
