The Family Line of Jesus the Messiah
1This is the written story of the family line of Jesus the Messiah. He is the son of David. He is also the son of Abraham.
2Abraham was the father of Isaac.
Isaac was the father of Jacob.
Jacob was the father of Judah and his brothers.
3Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah. Tamar was their mother.
Perez was the father of Hezron.
Hezron was the father of Ram.
4Ram was the father of Amminadab.
Amminadab was the father of Nahshon.
Nahshon was the father of Salmon.
5Salmon was the father of Boaz. Rahab was Boaz’s mother.
Boaz was the father of Obed. Ruth was Obed’s mother.
Obed was the father of Jesse.
6And Jesse was the father of King David.
David was the father of Solomon. Solomon’s mother had been Uriah’s wife.
7Solomon was the father of Rehoboam.
Rehoboam was the father of Abijah.
Abijah was the father of Asa.
8Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat.
Jehoshaphat was the father of Jehoram.
Jehoram was the father of Uzziah.
9Uzziah was the father of Jotham.
Jotham was the father of Ahaz.
Ahaz was the father of Hezekiah.
10Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh.
Manasseh was the father of Amon.
Amon was the father of Josiah.
11And Josiah was the father of Jeconiah and his brothers. At that time, the Jewish people were forced to go away to Babylon.
12After this, the family line continued.
Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel.
Shealtiel was the father of Zerubbabel.
13Zerubbabel was the father of Abihud.
Abihud was the father of Eliakim.
Eliakim was the father of Azor.
14Azor was the father of Zadok.
Zadok was the father of Akim.
Akim was the father of Elihud.
15Elihud was the father of Eleazar.
Eleazar was the father of Matthan.
Matthan was the father of Jacob.
16Jacob was the father of Joseph. Joseph was the husband of Mary. And Mary was the mother of Jesus, who is called the Messiah.
17So there were 14 generations from Abraham to David. There were 14 from David until the Jewish people were forced to go away to Babylon. And there were 14 from that time to the Messiah.
Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about. His mother Mary and Joseph had promised to get married. But before they started to live together, it became clear that she was going to have a baby. She became pregnant by the power of the Holy Spirit. 19Her husband Joseph was faithful to the law. But he did not want to put her to shame in public. So he planned to divorce her quietly.
20But as Joseph was thinking about this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary home as your wife. The baby inside her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She is going to have a son. You must give him the name Jesus. That’s because he will save his people from their sins.”
22All this took place to bring about what the Lord had said would happen. He had said through the prophet, 23“The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son. And he will be called Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14) The name Immanuel means “God with us.”
24Joseph woke up. He did what the angel of the Lord commanded him to do. He took Mary home as his wife. 25But he did not sleep with her until she gave birth to a son. And Joseph gave him the name Jesus.
Ang mga Ninuno ni Jesus
1Ito ang talaan ng mga ninuno ni Jesu-Cristo na mula sa angkan ni David. Si David ay mula sa lahi ni Abraham.
2Si Abraham ang ama ni Isaac, si Isaac ang ama ni Jacob, at si Jacob ang ama ni Juda at ng kanyang mga kapatid. 3Si Juda ang ama nina Perez at Zera, at si Tamar ang kanilang ina. Si Perez ang ama ni Hezron, at si Hezron ang ama ni Aram. 4Si Aram ang ama ni Aminadab, si Aminadab ang ama ni Nashon, at si Nashon ang ama ni Salmon. 5Si Salmon ang ama ni Boaz, at si Rahab ang kanyang ina. Si Boaz ang ama ni Obed, at si Ruth ang kanyang ina. Si Obed ang ama ni Jesse, 6at si Jesse ang ama ni Haring David.
Si Haring David ang ama ni Solomon (ang ina niya ay ang dating asawa ni Uria). 7Si Solomon ang ama ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam ang ama ni Abijah, at si Abijah ang ama ni Asa. 8Si Asa ang ama ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat ang ama ni Joram, at si Joram ang ama ni Uzia. 9Si Uzia ang ama ni Jotam, si Jotam ang ama ni Ahaz, at si Ahaz ang ama ni Hezekia. 10Si Hezekia ang ama ni Manase, si Manase ang ama ni Amos,1:10 Amos: o, Amon. si Amos ang ama ni Josia, 11at si Josia ang ama ni Jeconia at ng kanyang mga kapatid. Sa panahong ito, binihag ang mga Israelita at dinala sa Babilonia.
12Ito naman ang talaan ng mga ninuno ni Jesus matapos ang pagkabihag ng mga Israelita sa Babilonia: Si Jeconia ang ama ni Shealtiel, si Shealtiel ang ama ni Zerubabel, 13at si Zerubabel ang ama ni Abiud. Si Abiud ang ama ni Eliakim, si Eliakim ang ama ni Azor, 14at si Azor ang ama ni Zadok. Si Zadok ang ama ni Akim, si Akim ang ama ni Eliud, 15at si Eliud ang ama ni Eleazar. Si Eleazar ang ama ni Matan, si Matan ang ama ni Jacob, 16at si Jacob ang ama ni Jose na ang asawaʼy si Maria. Si Maria ang ina ni Jesus na tinatawag na Cristo. 17Kaya may 14 na henerasyon mula kay Abraham hanggang kay David, may 14 na henerasyon naman mula kay David hanggang sa pagkabihag ng mga Israelita sa Babilonia, at may 14 na henerasyon din mula sa pagkabihag hanggang kay Cristo.
Ang Pagkapanganak kay Jesu-Cristo
18Ganito ang pangyayari sa pagkapanganak kay Jesu-Cristo: Si Maria na kanyang ina ay nakatakdang ikasal kay Jose. Pero bago pa sila ikasal, nalaman ni Maria na buntis siya sa pamamagitan ng Banal na Espiritu. 19Si Jose na magiging asawa niya ay isang matuwid na tao at ayaw nitong malagay sa kahihiyan si Maria, kaya ipinasya niyang hiwalayan na lang si Maria nang palihim. 20Habang pinag-iisipan ito ni Jose, nagpakita sa kanya sa panaginip ang isang anghel ng Panginoon at nagsabi, “Jose, na mula sa angkan ni David, huwag kang matakot na pakasalan si Maria dahil ang pagbubuntis niyaʼy sa pamamagitan ng Banal na Espiritu. 21Manganganak siya ng isang lalaki at papangalanan mo siyang Jesus,1:21 Jesus: Ang ibig sabihin ng pangalang Jesus sa wikang Hebreo ay “Nagliligtas ang Panginoon.” dahil ililigtas niya ang kanyang bayan sa kanilang mga kasalanan.” 22Nangyari ang lahat ng ito upang matupad ang sinabi ng Panginoon sa pamamagitan ng propeta, 23“Magbubuntis ang isang birhen1:23 birhen: o, dalaga. at manganganak ng isang lalaki. Tatawagin siyang Emmanuel”1:23 Isa. 7:14. (na ang ibig sabihin, “Kasama natin ang Dios”). 24Nang magising si Jose, sinunod niya ang sinabi ng anghel at pinakasalan niya si Maria. 25Pero hindi siya sumiping kay Maria hanggang sa maipanganak nito ang sanggol. Nang manganak na si Maria, pinangalanan ni Jose ang sanggol ng Jesus.
