The Nativity of the Messiah
18The birth of Jesus Christ came about this way: After His mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, it was discovered before they came together that she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit. #Mt 12:46Lk 1:27 19So her husband Joseph, being a righteous man, #Mt 13:17Mk 10:12Lk 2:361Co 14:352Co 11:2Gl 4:27 and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly. #Dt 22:20-2424:1-4Mt 2:7Lk 16:18Jn 8:4-5
20But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord suddenly 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 by the Holy Spirit. #2Ch 1:1Mt 13:49|NoBook| 27:19Jn 6:20Rm 1:3 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, # Jesus is the Gk form of the Hb name “Joshua,” which = “The Lord saves” or “Yahweh saves.” #Lk 1:31|NoBook| 2:21Jn 10:251Jn 2:12 because He will save His people from their sins.” #Lk 2:11Jn 1:29Ac 4:12|NoBook| 5:31|NoBook| 13:23
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 7:14Mt 21:1-4Lk 24:44Rm 1:2-4
24When Joseph got up from sleeping, he did as the Lord’s angel had commanded him. He married her #Mt 1:6|NoBook| 13:49Lk 1:1|NoBook| 19:32Jd 5 25but did not know her intimately until she gave birth to a son. # Other mss read to her firstborn son And he named Him Jesus. #Gn 4:1Ex 13:2Jdg 11:391Sm 1:19Lk 2:7
