Ang Kagikan ni Jesu-Cristo
1Mao kini ang kagikan ni Jesu-Cristo nga kaliwat ni David. Si David kaliwat ni Abraham.
2 Si Abraham amahan ni Isaac, si Isaac amahan ni Jacob, ug si Jacob amahan ni Juda ug sa mga igsoon niini nga lalaki. 3 Si Juda nakapangasawa kang Tamar ug may duha sila ka anak nga si Perez ug si Zara. Si Perez amahan ni Hezron, ug si Hezron amahan ni Aram. 4 Si Aram amahan ni Aminadab, si Aminadab amahan ni Naason, ug si Naason amahan ni Salmon. 5 Si Salmon nakapangasawa kang Rahab ug ang ilang anak mao si Boaz. Si Boaz amahan ni Obed ug ang inahan niini mao si Ruth. Si Obed amahan ni Jesse, 6 ug si Jesse amahan ni Haring David.
Si Haring David amahan ni Solomon ug ang iyang inahan asawa kaniadto ni Uria. 7 Si Solomon amahan ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam amahan ni Abia, ug si Abia amahan ni Asa. 8 Si Asa amahan ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat amahan ni Joram, ug si Joram amahan ni Uzia. 9 Si Uzia amahan ni Jotam, si Jotam amahan ni Ahaz, ug si Ahaz amahan ni Hezekia. 10 Si Hezekia amahan ni Manase, si Manase amahan ni Amos, si Amos amahan ni Josias, 11 ug si Josias amahan ni Jeconia ug sa mga igsoon niini nga lalaki. Niadtong panahona gibihag ang mga taga-Israel ngadto sa Babilonia.
12 Mao kini ang kagikan ni Jesus human mabihag ang mga taga-Israel ngadto sa Babilonia: si Jeconia amahan ni Shealtiel, si Shealtiel amahan ni Zerubabel, 13 si Zerubabel amahan ni Abiud, si Abiud amahan ni Eliakim, ug si Eliakim amahan ni Azor. 14 Si Azor amahan ni Zadok, si Zadok amahan ni Akim, ug si Akim amahan ni Eliud. 15 Si Eliud amahan ni Eleazar, si Eleazar amahan ni Matan, si Matan amahan ni Jacob, 16 si Jacob amahan ni Jose nga bana ni Maria. Si Maria mao ang inahan ni Jesus nga gitawag nga Cristo. 17 Busa may 14 ka mga henerasyon gikan kang Abraham hangtod kang David. Ug may 14 usab ka mga henerasyon gikan kang David hangtod sa panahon sa pagkabihag sa mga taga-Israel ngadto sa Babilonia. Gikan sa pagkabihag nila may 14 pa gayod ka mga henerasyon hangtod kang Cristo.
Ang Pagkatawo ni Cristo
18 Mao kini ang sugilanon sa pagka-tawo ni Jesu-Cristo: Si Maria nga iyang inahan kaslonon na kang Jose. Apan sa wala pa sila mahiusa namatikdan ni Maria nga mabdos na siya pinaagi sa gahom sa Espiritu Santo. 19 Si Jose nga iyang pamanhonon usa ka matarong nga tawo ug dili siya buot nga maulawan si Maria. Busa nakadesisyon siya nga bulagan niya sa hilom si Maria. 20 Ug samtang nagapamalandong si Jose niini, nagpakita kaniya pinaagi sa damgo ang anghel sa Ginoo ug miingon, “Jose, kaliwat ni David, ayaw kahadlok sa pagpa-ngasawa kang Maria, kay nagmabdos siya pinaagi sa Espiritu Santo. 21 Manganak siyag lalaki ug nganlan mo siyag Jesus, kay luwason niya ang iyang katawhan gikan sa ilang mga sala.” 22 Nahitabo kini aron matuman ang giingon sa Ginoo pinaagi sa propeta nga nagaingon, 23 “Magmabdos ang usa ka dalagang putli, ug manganak siyag lalaki. Ug ang maong bata pagatawgon nga Emmanuel”[a] (nga kon sabton, “Ang Dios kauban nato”). 24 Busa sa pagmata ni Jose gituman niya ang giingon kaniya sa anghel sa Ginoo, ug gipangasawa niya si Maria. 25 Apan wala siya makighilawas kang Maria samtang wala pa kini manganak. Sa dihang nanganak na si Maria, ginganlan ni Jose ang bata ug Jesus.

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.
