So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

18

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was 1espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
1 Luke 1:27

19

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to 1put her away privily.
1 Deut 24:1-3 Jer 3:1 Matt 5:31, 19:7 Mark 10:4

20

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the 1Holy Ghost.
1 Luke 1:35

21

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name 1aJESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
1 Luke 1:31 Acts 4:12, Acts 13:38

22

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

23

1Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
1 Isa 7:14

24

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

25

And knew her not till she had brought forth her 1firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
1 Exod 13:2 Luke 2:7

(a) Jesus = "Savior". The Name "Jesus" is from Greek "Iesous" (Strongs #2424), from the Hebrew word "Yehowshuwa" (Strongs #3091) - meaning "Jehovah-saved".
