The Preaching Of Mathai The Apostle – Chapters 1 – 4
THE HOLY GOSPEL: THE PREACHING OF MATHAI THE APOSTLE. BY THE STRENGTH OF OUR LORD AND OUR ALOHA JESHU MESHICHA, WE BEGIN TO WRITE THE BOOK OF THE HOLY GOSPEL; AND FIRST, THE GOSPEL, THE PREACHING OF MATHAI.
THE RECORD of the generation of Jeshu the Meshicha, the son of David, son of Abraham.
Abraham begat Ishok, Ishok begat Jakub, Jakub begat Jehuda and his brethren, Jehuda begat Pharets and Zoroch from Thomar.
Pharets begat Hetsron, Hetsron begat Arom, Arom begat Aminodob, Aminodob begat Nachshun, Nachshun begat Salmun, Salmun begat Booz from Rochab, Booz begat Ubid from Ruth, Ubid begat Ishai, Ishai begat David the king; David begat Shelemun from [her who had been] the wife of Uria; Shelemun begat Rehebaam, Rehebaam begat Abia, Abia begat Asa, Asa begat Johushaphat, Johushaphat begat Jurom, Jurom begat Uzia, Uzia begat Juthom, Juthom begat Ahaz, Ahaz begat Hezakia, Hezakia begat Menasha, Menasha begat Amun, Amun begat Jushia, Jushia begat Jukania and his brethren at the exile of Bobel. And after the exile of Bobel Jukania begat Shalathiel, Shalathiel begat Zurbobel, Zurbobel begat Abiud, Abiud begat Aliakim, Aliakim begat Ozur, Ozur begat Zoduk, Zoduk begat Akin, Akin begat Aliud, Aliud begat Aliozar, Aliozar begat Mathan, Mathan begat Jakub, Jakub begat Jauseph, husband of Mariam, of whom was born JESHU who is called the Meshicha. 1
Thus all the generations from Abraham to David (were) fourteen generations; and from David to the exile of Bobel, fourteen generations; and from the exile of Bobel to the Meshicha, fourteen generations.
NOW the nativity of Jeshu the Meshicha was thus:
While Mariam his mother was betrothed to Jauseph, before they could be consociated, she was found to be with child from the Spirit of Holiness. But Jauseph her husband was just, and, not willing to defame her, meditated privately to release her.
But while (on) these (things) he reflected, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, and said to him, Jauseph, son of David, fear not to take Mariam thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is from the Spirit of Holiness.
She shall give birth to a son, and thou shalt call his name JESHU; for he shall save his people from their sins.
Now all this was done, that what was spoken from the Lord by 2 the prophet might be fulfilled:
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth the son, and they shall call his name Amanuel; which is interpreted, With us (is) our Aloha.
Then Jauseph, when he had arisen from his sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took unto him his wife; and knew her not until she had given birth to her son, the firstborn; and she called his name Jeshu.
