The Nativity of the Christ
18The birth of Jesus Christ came about this way: After his mother Mary had been engaged#1.18: Or betrothed to Joseph, it was discovered before they came together that she was pregnant from the Holy Spirit.# Mt 12:46; Lk 1:27,35 19So her husband Joseph, being a righteous man,# Mt 13:17; Mk 10:12; Lk 2:36; 1Co 14:35; 2Co 11:2; Gl 4:27 and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly.# Dt 22:20-24; 24:1-4; Mt 2:7; Lk 16:18; Jn 8:4-5
20But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.# 2Ch 1:1; Mt 13:49; 27:19; Jn 6:20; Rm 1:3 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus,# Lk 1:31; 2:21; Jn 10:25; 1Jn 2:12 because he will save his people from their sins.”# Lk 2:11; Jn 1:29; Ac 4:12; 5:31; 13:23,38-39
22Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet:
23See, the virgin will become pregnant
and give birth to a son,
and they will name him Immanuel,# Is 7:14
which is translated “God is with us.”# Is 7:14; Mt 21:1-4; Lk 24:44; Rm 1:2-4
24When Joseph woke up, he did as the Lord’s angel had commanded him. He married her# Mt 1:6; 13:49; Lk 1:1; 19:32; Jd 5 25but did not have sexual relations with her until she gave birth to a son.#1.25: Other mss read to her firstborn son And he named him Jesus.# Gn 4:1,17; Ex 13:2; Jdg 11:39; 1Sm 1:19; Lk 2:7,21
