Genealogía de Jesucristo

Lc 3:23-38

Rt 4:18-22

1Cr 3:10-17

1Estos son los antepasados de Jesucristo, que fue descendiente de David y de Abraham:

2Abraham fue el padre de Isaac;

Isaac de Jacob, y Jacob de Judá y sus hermanos.

3Judá fue el padre de Fares y Zara (la madre fue Tamar);

Fares fue el padre de Esrom, y Esrom de Aram.

4Aram fue el padre de Aminadab;

Aminadab de Naasón, y Naasón de Salmón.

5Salmón fue el padre de Booz (la madre fue Rahab);

Booz de Obed (la madre fue Rut), y Obed de Isaí.

6Isaí fue el padre del rey David,

y el rey David de Salomón (la madre fue Betsabé,

que había sido esposa de Urías).

7Salomón fue el padre de Roboam;

Roboam de Abías, y Abías de Asa.

8Asa fue el padre de Josafat;

Josafat de Joram, y Joram de Uzías.

9Uzías fue el padre de Jotam;

Jotam de Acaz, y Acaz de Ezequías.

10Ezequías fue el padre de Manasés;

Manasés de Amós, y Amós de Josías.

11Josías, en el tiempo de la cautividad en Babilonia,

fue el padre de Jeconías y sus hermanos.

12Después del cautiverio, Jeconías fue el padre de Salatiel,

y Salatiel de Zorobabel.

13Zorobabel fue el padre de Abiud;

Abiud de Eliaquim, y Eliaquim de Azor.

14Azor fue el padre de Sadoc;

Sadoc de Aquim, y Aquim de Eliud.

15Eliud fue el padre de Eleazar;

Eleazar de Matán, y Matán de Jacob.

16Este Jacob fue el padre de José, el marido de María,

la cual fue la madre de Jesús, el llamado Cristo.

17Por tanto, desde Abraham hasta David hubo catorce generaciones; otras catorce desde David hasta la cautividad en Babilonia, y catorce más desde la cautividad en Babilonia hasta Cristo.

Nacimiento de Jesucristo

18El nacimiento de Jesucristo sucedió de este modo: María, su madre, estaba comprometida en matrimonio con José, pero antes de hacer vida conyugal se encontró encinta por la acción del Espíritu Santo. 19José, que era un hombre bueno y justo, al conocer el estado de María, y para no manchar su reputación, decidió separarse de ella en secreto. 20Mientras pensaba estas cosas, un ángel del Señor se le apareció en sueños y le dijo:

—José, hijo de David, no tengas miedo de tomar como esposa a María, porque el hijo que ha concebido es del Espíritu Santo. 21Cuando ese hijo nazca, tú le pondrás por nombre Jesús. Lo llamarás así porque él salvará a su pueblo de sus pecados.

22Todo esto aconteció para que se cumpliese lo que el Señor había anunciado por boca del profeta, que dijo:

23”La virgen quedará encinta, y tendrá un hijo que se llamará Emanuel” (que significa: “Dios está con nosotros”).

24José, al despertar de aquel sueño, obedeció lo que el ángel del Señor le había mandado, y tomó por esposa a María.

25Pero no tuvo relaciones conyugales con ella hasta que nació su hijo, al que José puso el nombre de Jesús.

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).

Notas al pie

  1. Matthew 1:1 Heb Yeshua (Joshua), meaning 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.
