Amplified Bible

Matthew 1

The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah

1The record of the genealogy of [a]Jesus the [b]Messiah, the son (descendant) of [c]David, the son (descendant) of Abraham:

Abraham [d]was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of [e]Judah and his brothers [who became the twelve tribes of Israel]. Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez was the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Ram. Ram was the father of Aminadab, Aminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon. Salmon was the father of Boaz by [f]Rahab, Boaz was the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse. Jesse was the father of [g]David the king.

David was the father of Solomon by [h]Bathsheba who had been the wife of Uriah. Solomon was the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asa. Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah. Uzziah was the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah. 10 Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amon, and Amon the father of Josiah. 11 Josiah became the father of Jeconiah [also called Coniah and Jehoiachin] and his brothers, at the time of the deportation (exile) to Babylon.

12 After the deportation to Babylon: Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel. 13 Zerubbabel was the father of Abihud, Abihud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor. 14 Azor was the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud. 15 Eliud was the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob. 16 Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, by [i]whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah (Christ).

17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen; from David to the Babylonian deportation (exile), fourteen generations; and from the Babylonian deportation to the Messiah, fourteen generations.

Conception and Birth of Jesus

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been [j]betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by [the power of] the Holy Spirit. 19 And Joseph her [promised] husband, being a just and righteous man and not wanting to expose her publicly to shame, planned to send her away and divorce her quietly. 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the Child who has been [k]conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a Son, and you shall name Him Jesus (The Lord is salvation), for He will [l]save His people from their sins.” 22 All this happened in order to fulfill what the Lord had spoken through the [m]prophet [Isaiah]: 23 Behold, the [n]virgin shall be with child and give birth to a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel”—which, when translated, means, “God with us.” 24 Then Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and he took Mary [to his home] as his wife, 25 but he kept her a virgin until she had given birth to a Son [her firstborn child]; and he named Him Jesus (The Lord is salvation).

  2. Matthew 1:1 Gr Christos. Greek for Messiah, which means Anointed One. Throughout his gospel, which is directed primarily to Jewish believers, Matthew uses OT Scripture to emphasize the fact that Jesus is their promised Messiah.
  3. Matthew 1:1 The shepherd boy who killed the Philistine giant Goliath, and later became king of Israel.
  4. Matthew 1:2 Lit begot, fathered, from the Greek word gennao, meaning “to father a child” (early modern English beget) and so throughout the genealogy whenever father occurs.
  5. Matthew 1:2 Gr Judas; names of people in the OT are given in their OT form.
  6. Matthew 1:5 The woman who assisted the Hebrew spies before the conquest of Jericho (Josh 2:1-21).
  7. Matthew 1:6 David is the only one addressed as “the king.” The text places an emphasis on David, showing that Jesus is a descendant of David and an heir to the throne of David and the Davidic Covenant.
  8. Matthew 1:6 Lit her of Uriah.
  9. Matthew 1:16 The Greek singular feminine pronoun hes, translated “whom,” shows that Jesus was born of Mary alone, without Joseph’s participation; however, Jesus was considered Joseph’s legal son and heir. Accordingly, Matthew’s genealogy confirms Jesus as a legitimate descendant of David.
  10. Matthew 1:18 The first stage of marriage (called shiddukin in Hebrew) in Jewish tradition and law, usually lasting for a year before the wedding night; unlike an engagement, it was legally binding and required a divorce to nullify it. The woman remained with her parents during the betrothal year and was referred to as a “wife” even though the marriage was not consummated during this period of time (cf Deut 22:23, 24).
  11. Matthew 1:20 Lit begotten.
  12. Matthew 1:21 Those who, by personal faith, accept Him as Savior are saved from the penalty of sin and reconciled with the Father.
  13. Matthew 1:22 The prophets in the Bible always have the ability to foretell the future as revealed to them by God. Scripture provides stringent criteria for testing a prophet’s ability to foretell future events (Deut 18:22).
  14. Matthew 1:23 “Virgin” (Gr parthenos) clearly confirms that Mary was a virgin when she gave birth to Jesus.

Matthaeus 1

Gottes Sohn wird Mensch (Kapitel 1–2)

Die Abstammung von Jesus (Lukas 3,23-38)

1Dieses Buch berichtet die Geschichte[a] von Jesus Christus. Er ist ein Nachkomme Abrahams und Davids.

Abraham war der Vater von Isaak. Auf Isaak folgten in direkter Linie Jakob – der Vater von Juda und seinen Brüdern –, Juda und Perez. Perez und Serach waren die Söhne Tamars. Der Sohn von Perez hieß Hezron, und auf ihn folgten Ram, Amminadab, Nachschon, Salmon, Boas – der Sohn von Rahab –, Obed – der Sohn von Ruth –, Isai und schließlich König David.

Von David stammte Salomo ab – der Sohn von Urias Frau –, und auf ihn folgten in direkter Linie Rehabeam, Abija, Asa, Joschafat, Joram, Usija, Jotam, Ahas, Hiskia, 10 Manasse, Amon, Josia 11 sowie Jojachin und seine Brüder. Sie wurden ungefähr zu der Zeit geboren, als das Volk von Juda nach Babylonien verschleppt wurde.

12 Nach der Zeit der Verbannung wurde Schealtiël geboren, und auf ihn folgten Serubbabel, 13 Abihud, Eljakim, Asor, 14 Zadok, Achim, Eliud, 15 Eleasar, Mattan und Jakob. 16 Jakob war der Vater von Josef und dieser wiederum der Mann von Maria. Sie brachte Jesus zur Welt, der Christus genannt wird.

17 Von Abraham bis zu David sind es also vierzehn Generationen. Auch von David bis zur Verbannung des Volkes nach Babylonien sind es vierzehn Generationen, und von dieser Zeit bis zu Christus, dem von Gott erwählten Retter, noch einmal vierzehn.

Gott wird Mensch (Lukas 1,26–2,20)

18 Und so wurde Jesus Christus geboren: Seine Mutter Maria war mit Josef verlobt. Noch bevor sie geheiratet und miteinander geschlafen hatten, erwartete Maria ein Kind. Sie war vom Heiligen Geist schwanger geworden. 19 Josef war ein Mann, der sich an Gottes Gebote hielt, er wollte Maria aber auch nicht öffentlich bloßstellen. So überlegte er, die Verlobung stillschweigend aufzulösen. 20 Noch während er darüber nachdachte, erschien ihm im Traum ein Engel des Herrn und sagte: »Josef, du Nachkomme von David, zögere nicht, Maria zu heiraten! Denn das Kind, das sie erwartet, ist vom Heiligen Geist. 21 Sie wird einen Sohn zur Welt bringen, den sollst du Jesus nennen (›Der Herr rettet‹). Denn er wird die Menschen seines Volkes von ihren Sünden befreien.«

22 Dies alles geschah, damit sich erfüllte, was der Herr durch seinen Propheten vorausgesagt hatte: 23 »Die Jungfrau wird schwanger werden und einen Sohn zur Welt bringen. Den wird man Immanuel nennen.«[b] – Immanuel bedeutet »Gott ist mit uns«.

24 Als Josef aufwachte, tat er, was der Engel des Herrn ihm aufgetragen hatte, und heiratete Maria. 25 Er schlief aber nicht mit ihr bis zur Geburt ihres Sohnes. Josef gab ihm den Namen Jesus.
