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.

Mateus 1

A genealogia de Jesus Cristo

1São estes os antepassados de Jesus Cristo, descendente do rei David e de Abraão:

2/6 Os descendentes de Abraão foram sucessivamente Isaque, Jacob, Judá mais os irmãos deste. Judá foi pai de Peres e de Zera. (Tamar foi a mãe de ambos.) Depois de Peres vieram Hezrom, Rão, Aminadabe, Nassom, Salmom, Boaz (cuja mãe foi Raabe), Obede (que teve por mãe Rute), Jessé, e o rei David.

A seguir a David os descendentes foram Salomão (cuja mãe tinha sido mulher de Urias), 7/11 Reboão, Abias, Asa, Jeosafá, Jorão, Uzias, Jotão, Acaz, Ezequias, Manassés, Amom, Josias, Jeconias e seus irmãos (que nasceram quando os judeus foram deportados para Babilónia).

12/16 Depois desse exílio, a linha de descendência continuou sucessivamente com Jeconias, Salatiel, Zorobabel, Abiude, Eliaquim, Azor, Zadoque, Jaquim, Eliude, Eleazar, Matã, Jacob e por fim José, marido de Maria, mãe de Jesus Cristo, o Messias.

17 São catorze gerações desde Abraão até ao rei David; catorze desde o tempo do rei David até ao exílio em Babilónia; e catorze do exílio até Cristo.

O nascimento de Jesus

18 Eis o que se passou antes do nascimento de Jesus Cristo: Maria, sua mãe, estava noiva de José, mas, embora fosse ainda virgem, ficou grávida, pelo Espírito Santo. 19 Então José, seu noivo, homem de princípios, decidiu pôr termo à promessa de casamento, querendo, porém, fazê­lo de tal modo que ela não ficasse com má fama entre o povo.

20/22 Estando ele a pensar no caso, teve um sonho no qual via um anjo de pé, ao seu lado, dizendo­lhe: “José, filho de David, não tenhas medo de aceitar Maria como tua mulher! A criança que ela traz no ventre foi gerada pelo Espírito Santo. Ela terá um filho a quem porás o nome de Jesus, porque ele salvará o seu povo dos seus pecados.” Assim se cumpriu a mensagem de Deus através dos seus profetas:

23     “Uma virgem conceberá, e dará à luz um filho
    e ser­lhe­á posto o nome de Emanuel.”

Emanuel quer dizer: Deus está connosco.

24/25 Quando acordou, José fez o que o anjo lhe mandara e levou Maria para casa como sua mulher. Mas ela continuou virgem até nascer o seu filho. José pôs­lhe o nome de Jesus.
