1Registro da genealogia de Jesus Cristo, filho de Davi, filho de Abraão:

Abraão gerou Isaque;

Isaque gerou Jacó;

Jacó gerou Judá e seus irmãos;

Judá gerou Perez e Zerá,

cuja mãe foi Tamar;

Perez gerou Esrom;

Esrom gerou Arão;

Arão gerou Aminadabe;

Aminadabe gerou Naassom;

Naassom gerou Salmom;

Salmom gerou Boaz,

cuja mãe foi Raabe;

Boaz gerou Obede,

cuja mãe foi Rute;

Obede gerou Jessé;

e Jessé gerou o rei Davi.

Davi gerou Salomão,

cuja mãe tinha sido

mulher de Urias;

Salomão gerou Roboão;

Roboão gerou Abias;

Abias gerou Asa;

Asa gerou Josafá;

Josafá gerou Jorão;

Jorão gerou Uzias;

Uzias gerou Jotão;

Jotão gerou Acaz;

Acaz gerou Ezequias;

10 Ezequias gerou Manassés;

Manassés gerou Amom;

Amom gerou Josias;

11 e Josias gerou Jeconias[a]

e seus irmãos,

no tempo do exílio

na Babilônia.

12 Depois do exílio na Babilônia:

Jeconias gerou Salatiel;

Salatiel gerou Zorobabel;

13 Zorobabel gerou Abiúde;

Abiúde gerou Eliaquim;

Eliaquim gerou Azor;

14 Azor gerou Sadoque;

Sadoque gerou Aquim;

Aquim gerou Eliúde;

15 Eliúde gerou Eleazar;

Eleazar gerou Matã;

Matã gerou Jacó;

16 e Jacó gerou José,

marido de Maria,

da qual nasceu Jesus,

que é chamado Cristo.

17 Assim, ao todo houve catorze gerações de Abraão a Davi, catorze de Davi até o exílio na Babilônia, e catorze do exílio até o Cristo[b].

O Nascimento de Jesus Cristo

18 Foi assim o nascimento de Jesus Cristo: Maria, sua mãe, estava prometida em casamento a José, mas, antes que se unissem, achou-se grávida pelo Espírito Santo. 19 Por ser José, seu marido, um homem justo, e não querendo expô-la à desonra pública, pretendia anular o casamento secretamente. 20 Mas, depois de ter pensado nisso, apareceu-lhe um anjo do Senhor em sonho e disse: “José, filho de Davi, não tema receber Maria como sua esposa, pois o que nela foi gerado procede do Espírito Santo. 21 Ela dará à luz um filho, e você deverá dar-lhe o nome de Jesus[c], porque ele salvará o seu povo dos seus pecados”.

22 Tudo isso aconteceu para que se cumprisse o que o Senhor dissera pelo profeta: 23 “A virgem ficará grávida e dará à luz um filho, e lhe chamarão Emanuel”[d], que significa “Deus conosco”.

24 Ao acordar, José fez o que o anjo do Senhor lhe tinha ordenado e recebeu Maria como sua esposa. 25 Mas não teve relações com ela enquanto ela não deu à luz um filho. E ele lhe pôs o nome de Jesus.

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.
