—— Matthew 1 ——
An Introduction to Jesus the Messiah
1:1This is a record of the life of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
The Ancestry of Jesus – Genealogy of Jesus traced through Joseph
2Abraham fathered Isaac, Isaac fathered Jacob, and Jacob fathered Judah and his brothers. 3Judah fathered Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez fathered Hezron, Hezron fathered Aram, 4Aram fathered Amminadab, Amminadab fathered Nahshon, and Nahshon fathered Salmon. 5Salmon fathered Boaz by Rahab, Boaz fathered Obed by Ruth, Obed fathered Jesse, 6 and Jesse fathered King David.
David fathered Solomon by the wife of Uriah, 7Solomon fathered Rehoboam, Rehoboam fathered Abijah, Abijah fathered Asaph, 8Asaphd fathered Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat fathered Joram, Joram fathered Uzziah, 9Uzziah fathered Jotham, Jotham fathered Ahaz, Ahaz fathered Hezekiah, 10Hezekiah fathered Manasseh, Manasseh fathered Amos, and Amos fathered Josiah. 11Josiah fathered Jechoniahg and his brothers at the time of the deportation to Babylon.
12After the deportation to Babylon, Jechoniahh fathered Salathiel, Salathiel fathered Zerubbabel, 13Zerubbabel fathered Abiud, Abiud fathered Eliakim, Eliakim fathered Azor, 14Azor fathered Zadok, Zadok fathered Achim, Achim fathered Eliud, 15Eliud fathered Eleazar, Eleazar fathered Matthan, and Matthan fathered Jacob. 16Jacob fathered Joseph, the husband of Mary, who was the mother of Jesus, who is called the Messiah.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David totaled fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon totaled fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Messiah there were fourteen generations.
The Birth of Jesus in the town of Bethlehem
18 Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah happened in this way. When his mother Mary was engaged to Joseph, before they lived together she was discovered to be pregnant by the Holy Spirit. 19 Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to disgrace her, decided to divorce her secretly.
20 After he had thought about it, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. “Joseph, son of David,” he said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus, because he is the one who will save his people from their sins.”
22 Now all this happened to fulfill what was declared by the Lord through the prophet when he said,
23 “See, a virgin will become pregnant
and give birth to a son,
and they will name him Immanuel,”
which means, “God with us.” 24 When Joseph got up from his sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary as his wife. 25 He did not have marital relations withs her until she had given birth to a son; and he named him Jesus.
—— Matthew 2 ——
The Visit of the Wise Men(Magi)
1After Jesus had been born in Bethlehem of Judea during the reign of King Herod, wise men arrived in Jerusalem from the east 2and asked, “Where is the one who was born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”
3When King Herod heard this, he was disturbed, as was all of Jerusalem. 4He called together all the high priests and scribes of the people and asked them where the Messiah was to be born. 5They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, because that is what was written by the prophet:
6‘O Bethlehem in the land of Judah,
you are by no means least among the rulers of Judah,
because from you will come a ruler
who will shepherd my people Israel.’”
7Then Herod secretly called together the wise men, found out from them the time the star had appeared, 8and sent them to Bethlehem. He told them, “As you go, search carefully for the child. When you find him, tell me so that I, too, may go and worship him.”
9After listening to the king, they set out, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it came and stopped over the place where the child was. 10When they saw the star, they were ecstatic with joy. 11After they went into the house and saw the child with his mother Mary, they fell down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasure sacks and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12Having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they left for their own country by a different road.
The Escape to Egypt
13After they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt,” he said. “Stay there until I tell you, because Herod intends to search for the child and kill him.” 14So Joseph got up, took the child and his mother, and left at night for Egypt. 15He stayed there until Herod’s death in order to fulfill what was declared by the Lord through the prophet when he said, “Out of Egypt I called my Son.”
The Massacre of the Infants
16Herod flew into a rage when he learned that he had been tricked by the wise men, so he ordered the execution of all the male children in Bethlehem and all its neighboring regions, who were two years old and younger, according to the time that he had determined from the wise men. 17Then what was declared by the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled when he said,
18“A voice was heard in Ramah:
wailing and great mourning.
Rachel was crying for her children.
She refused to be comforted,
because they no longer existed.”
The Return to Nazareth
19But after Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt. 20“Get up,” he said. “Take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, because those who were trying to kill the child are dead.”
21So Joseph got up, took the child and his mother, and went into the land of Israel. 22But when he heard that Archelaus was ruling over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there, after having been warned in a dream. So he left for the region of Galilee 23and settled in a town called Nazareth in order to fulfill what was said by the prophets: “He will be called a Nazarene.”
