The Message

Matthew 1

1The family tree of Jesus Christ, David’s son, Abraham’s son:

2-6 Abraham had Isaac,
Isaac had Jacob,
Jacob had Judah and his brothers,
Judah had Perez and Zerah (the mother was Tamar),
Perez had Hezron,
Hezron had Aram,
Aram had Amminadab,
Amminadab had Nahshon,
Nahshon had Salmon,
Salmon had Boaz (his mother was Rahab),
Boaz had Obed (Ruth was the mother),
Obed had Jesse,
Jesse had David,
    and David became king.

6-11 David had Solomon (Uriah’s wife was the mother),
Solomon had Rehoboam,
Rehoboam had Abijah,
Abijah had Asa,
Asa had Jehoshaphat,
Jehoshaphat had Joram,
Joram had Uzziah,
Uzziah had Jotham,
Jotham had Ahaz,
Ahaz had Hezekiah,
Hezekiah had Manasseh,
Manasseh had Amon,
Amon had Josiah,
Josiah had Jehoiachin and his brothers,
    and then the people were taken into the Babylonian exile.

12-16 When the Babylonian exile ended,

Jeconiah had Shealtiel,
Shealtiel had Zerubbabel,
Zerubbabel had Abiud,
Abiud had Eliakim,
Eliakim had Azor,
Azor had Zadok,
Zadok had Achim,
Achim had Eliud,
Eliud had Eleazar,
Eleazar had Matthan,
Matthan had Jacob,
Jacob had Joseph, Mary’s husband,
    the Mary who gave birth to Jesus,
    the Jesus who was called Christ.

17 There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David,
    another fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile,
    and yet another fourteen from the Babylonian exile to Christ.

The Birth of Jesus

18-19 The birth of Jesus took place like this. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. Before they came to the marriage bed, Joseph discovered she was pregnant. (It was by the Holy Spirit, but he didn’t know that.) Joseph, chagrined but noble, determined to take care of things quietly so Mary would not be disgraced.

20-23 While he was trying to figure a way out, he had a dream. God’s angel spoke in the dream: “Joseph, son of David, don’t hesitate to get married. Mary’s pregnancy is Spirit-conceived. God’s Holy Spirit has made her pregnant. She will bring a son to birth, and when she does, you, Joseph, will name him Jesus—‘God saves’—because he will save his people from their sins.” This would bring the prophet’s embryonic sermon to full term:

Watch for this—a virgin will get pregnant and bear a son;
They will name him Immanuel (Hebrew for “God is with us”).

24-25 Then Joseph woke up. He did exactly what God’s angel commanded in the dream: He married Mary. But he did not consummate the marriage until she had the baby. He named the baby Jesus.

Ang Pulong Sa Dios

Mateo 1

Ang Kagikan ni Jesu-Cristo

1Mao kini ang kagikan ni Jesu-Cristo nga kaliwat ni David. Si David kaliwat ni Abraham.

Si Abraham amahan ni Isaac, si Isaac amahan ni Jacob, ug si Jacob amahan ni Juda ug sa mga igsoon niini nga lalaki. Si Juda nakapangasawa kang Tamar ug may duha sila ka anak nga si Perez ug si Zara. Si Perez amahan ni Hezron, ug si Hezron amahan ni Aram. Si Aram amahan ni Aminadab, si Aminadab amahan ni Naason, ug si Naason amahan ni Salmon. Si Salmon nakapangasawa kang Rahab ug ang ilang anak mao si Boaz. Si Boaz amahan ni Obed ug ang inahan niini mao si Ruth. Si Obed amahan ni Jesse, ug si Jesse amahan ni Haring David.

Si Haring David amahan ni Solomon ug ang iyang inahan asawa kaniadto ni Uria. Si Solomon amahan ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam amahan ni Abija, ug si Abija amahan ni Asa. Si Asa amahan ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat amahan ni Joram, ug si Joram amahan ni Uzia. Si Uzia amahan ni Jotam, si Jotam amahan ni Ahaz, ug si Ahaz amahan ni Hezekia. 10 Si Hezekia amahan ni Manases, si Manases amahan ni Amos, si Amos amahan ni Josias, 11 ug si Josias amahan ni Jeconia ug sa mga igsoon niini nga lalaki. Niadtong panahona gibihag ang mga taga-Israel ngadto sa Babilonia.

12 Mao kini ang kagikan ni Jesus human mabihag ang mga taga-Israel ngadto sa Babilonia: si Jeconia amahan ni Shealtiel, si Shealtiel amahan ni Zerubabel, 13 si Zerubabel amahan ni Abiud, si Abiud amahan ni Eliakim, ug si Eliakim amahan ni Azor. 14 Si Azor amahan ni Zadok, si Zadok amahan ni Akim, ug si Akim amahan ni Eliud. 15 Si Eliud amahan ni Eleazar, si Eleazar amahan ni Matan, si Matan amahan ni Jacob, 16 si Jacob amahan ni Jose nga bana ni Maria. Si Maria mao ang inahan ni Jesus nga gitawag nga Cristo. 17 Busa may 14 ka mga henerasyon gikan kang Abraham hangtod kang David. Ug may 14 usab ka mga henerasyon gikan kang David hangtod sa panahon sa pagkabihag sa mga taga-Israel ngadto sa Babilonia. Gikan sa pagkabihag nila may 14 pa gayod ka mga henerasyon hangtod kang Cristo.

Ang Pagkatawo ni Cristo

18 Mao kini ang sugilanon sa pagkatawo ni Jesu-Cristo: Si Maria nga iyang inahan kaslonon na kang Jose. Apan sa wala pa sila mahiusa namatikdan ni Maria nga buntis na siya pinaagi sa gahom sa Espiritu Santo. 19 Si Jose nga iyang pamanhonon usa ka matarong nga tawo ug dili siya buot nga maulawan si Maria. Busa nakahukom siya nga bulagan niya sa hilom si Maria. 20 Ug sa nakapamalandong na si Jose niini, nagpakita kaniya pinaagi sa damgo ang anghel sa Ginoo ug miingon, “Jose, kaliwat ni David, ayaw kahadlok sa pagpangasawa kang Maria, kay nagbuntis siya pinaagi sa Espiritu Santo. 21 Manganak siyag lalaki ug nganlan mo siyag Jesus, kay luwason niya ang iyang katawhan gikan sa ilang mga sala.” 22 Nahitabo kini aron matuman ang giingon sa Ginoo pinaagi sa propeta nga nagaingon, 23 “Magbuntis ang usa ka dalagang putli, ug manganak siyag lalaki. Ug ang maong bata pagatawgon nga Emmanuel”[a] (nga kon sabton, “Ang Dios kauban nato”). 24 Busa sa pagmata ni Jose gituman niya ang giingon kaniya sa anghel sa Ginoo, ug gipangasawa niya si Maria. 25 Apan wala siya makighilawas kang Maria samtang wala pa kini manganak. Sa dihang nanganak na si Maria, ginganlan ni Jose ang bata ug Jesus.
