Mary gave birth to Jesus, who is called the Messiah.

17 All those listed above include fourteen generations from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile, and fourteen from the Babylonian exile to the Messiah.

The Birth of Jesus the Messiah

18 This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. 19 Joseph, to whom she was engaged, was a righteous man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement[h] quietly.

20 As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. “Joseph, son of David,” the angel said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus,[i] for he will save his people from their sins.”

22 All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:

23 “Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
    She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,[j]
    which means ‘God is with us.’”

24 When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary as his wife. 25 But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.

イエスの系図

1これは、イエス・キリストの系図です。イエス・キリストはダビデ王の子孫、さらにさかのぼってアブラハムの子孫です。

アブラハムはイサクの父、イサクはヤコブの父、ヤコブはユダとその兄弟たちの父です。

アラムはアミナダブの父、アミナダブはナアソンの父、ナアソンはサルモンの父です。

サルモンはボアズの父〔母はラハブ〕、ボアズはオベデの父〔母はルツ〕、オベデはエッサイの父です。

エッサイはダビデ王の父、ダビデはソロモンの父〔母はウリヤの妻でした〕です。

ソロモンはレハブアムの父、レハブアムはアビヤの父、アビヤはアサの父です。

アサはヨサパテの父、ヨサパテはヨラムの父、ヨラムはウジヤの父です。

17 こういう次第で、アブラハムからダビデ王までが十四代、ダビデ王からバビロン移住までが十四代、バビロン移住からキリストまでが十四代となります。

約束されていた救い主

18 イエス・キリストの誕生は次のとおりです。母マリヤはヨセフと婚約していました。ところが結婚する前に、聖霊によってみごもったのです。 19 婚約者のヨセフは、神の教えを堅く守る人でしたから、婚約を破棄しようと決心しました。しかし、人前にマリヤの恥をさらしたくなかったので、ひそかに縁を切ることにしました。

20 ヨセフがこのことで悩んでいた時、天使が夢に現れて言いました。「ダビデの子孫ヨセフよ。ためらわないで、マリヤと結婚しなさい。マリヤは聖霊によってみごもったのです。 21 彼女は男の子を産みます。その子をイエス(「主は救い」の意)と名づけなさい。この方こそ、ご自分を信じる人々を罪から救ってくださるからです。 22 このことはみな、神が預言者(神に託されたことばを語る人)を通して語られた、次のことばが実現するためです。

23 『見よ。処女がみごもって、男の子を産む。その子はインマヌエル〔神が私たちと共におられる〕と呼ばれる。』イザヤ7・14

24 目が覚めるとヨセフは、天使の命じたとおり、マリヤと結婚しました。 25 しかし、その子が生まれるまでは、マリヤに触れませんでした。そして、生まれた子をイエスと名づけました。
