Introduction

1 The following account highlights the life of Jesus Christ, the descendant of the famous Jewish leader David, whose ancestor was Abraham.

Jesus Is Born

A young woman named Mary became pregnant while she was engaged to a man named Joseph. Since they hadn't had sexual relations with each other, he assumed that she had relations with another man. Instead of publicly embarrassing her for this, he decided to break their engagement privately. But before he did, a messenger from God spoke to him in a dream:

"Mary didn't have sexual relations with another man as you think. It was God who caused her to become pregnant. So get married as you had planned and name the child Jesus, which means helper, because he will help people follow God's advice."

Soon after this, Mary and Joseph were married, but they refrained from having sexual relations until after Mary delivered the child, whom they named Jesus. Many years before this, one of God's spokesmen predicted a young woman would bear a son who would be God's special messenger.

Since Jesus was born into a Jewish family, his ancestry was very important. His family tree includes 14 generations (900 years) from Abraham to the famous leader David, another 14 generations (400 years) from David to the time the Jewish people were taken captive by the Babylonians, and another 14 generations (530 years) from that time to Jesus:
