1.1 Prologus Incipit Matthæus cum primo prædicasset Evangelium in Judæa, volens transire ad gentes, primus Evangelium scripsit Hebraice: quod fratribus a quibus ibat, ad memoriam reliquit. Sicut enim necesse fuit ad confirmationem fidei Evangelium prædicare, sic et contra hæreticos scribi. Cum autem plures Evangelium scripserint, quatuor tantum habent auctoritatis testimonium: quia per quatuor mundi partes fidem nuntiant Trinitatis, et sunt quasi quatuor rotæ in quadriga Domini, quæ vehit eum per prædicationem Evangelii, et genus humanum quadrifida morte peremptum eorum erat prædicatione vivificandum: unde et aliorum evangelia deciderunt, nec recepta sunt: quia nolebant præfinitum numerum cessari propter virtutem sacramenti. Designantur etiam evangelistæ quatuor figuris, quæ non sunt deceptoriæ, sed jucundi mysterii sibi consciæ. Matthæus in homine intelligitur: quia circa humanitatem Christi principaliter immoratur. Marcus in leone, quia agit de resurrectione. Lucas in vitulo, agens de sacerdotio. Joannes in aquila, scribens sacramenta Divinitatis. Christus vero quem describunt, homo fuit de virgine natus: vitulus in immolatione, leo in resurrectione, aquila in ascensione.

Horum duorum specialiter dicitur Filius: quia unus primus inter patriarchas, alter inter reges ad quos facta est de Christo promissio, ut Judæis Christum ex lege venturum aperiret, in quo viderent vaticinia impleri. Filii David filii Abraham. Hos duos de omnibus elegit quorum Filius dicitur Christus, ut Judæis quibus scribit, scientibus ex lege Christum venturum, appareret hic esse qui diu erat promissus, in quo viderentur impleri omnia vaticinia; his enim solis in Veteri Testamento legitur facta promissio Abrahæ, et benedicentur in semine tuo omnes gentes terræ Gen. 22..

TSNTyndale Study Notes:

1:1–2:23 This account demonstrates that Jesus’ lineage and birth (ch 1), as well as the geography of his early years (ch 2), fulfilled Old Testament expectations, and that attempts to thwart God’s will do not succeed (2:1-15; see also 27:62-66).

1:1 The phrase a record of the ancestors introduces 1:1-17. A similar phrase is used in Genesis to introduce each section of that book.
• Jesus . . . David . . . Abraham: These names are repeated in reverse order in the genealogy, an example of a literary form known as chiasm (arrangement of elements in mirror-image). Being identified as a descendant of David introduces Jesus as Messiah (see Matt 12:23; 22:42-45), while the connection to Abraham emphasizes God’s covenant with Israel and the extension of that covenant to include all nations (see Matt 28:16-20; Gen 12:3).

TTNTyndale Theme Notes:

Genealogy of Jesus

Both Matthew and Luke provide genealogies of Jesus (Matt 1:1-17; Luke 3:23-38). The two genealogies differ for the generations following King David. Matthew follows the line of David’s son Solomon, while Luke follows the line of David’s son Nathan. One possible explanation is that Matthew records Joseph’s genealogy while Luke records Mary’s (in which case Joseph would have been Heli’s son-in-law).

Genealogies were kept quite accurately in Judaism, as Josephus confirms (Josephus, Life 1). Genealogies were important in the Old Testament and in Judaism generally because land rights were apportioned to families in Israel and because certain offices, such as priest and king, were inherited from father to son. Genealogies sometimes ran a record from the past to the present to illustrate religious themes, family descent, or political ties, as well as simple chronology (1 Chr 1–9). Most such lists were representative rather than a complete list of every individual.

The purpose of Matthew’s genealogy, unlike Luke’s, is to show Jesus’ heritage as running from Abraham through David. Jesus’ genealogy confirms him as a legitimate heir to the throne of David. So Jesus’ genealogy in Matthew goes back to Abraham, the father of the Jewish race. By contrast, the genealogy in Luke goes all the way back to Adam. This is consistent with Luke’s emphasis on Jesus as the Savior for all people everywhere.

In Matthew’s genealogy, the unusual mention of women with stained reputations (Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba), some of them Gentiles, is noteworthy and emphasizes God’s grace to redeem even those deemed unworthy by others.

Jesus’ genealogies do not prove that Jesus is the Messiah, but they do make him a possible candidate. His identity as the Messiah becomes evident in other ways (Matt 11:2-6). God had guided the course of history to its climax. Jesus is the anticipated Messiah of the Old Testament, the Savior of his people, and the King descended from David assuming his throne (see 2 Sam 7:16). He is heir to Abraham and ultimately fulfills God’s promises to Abraham (Gen 12:1-3).

UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: figures-of-speech / explicit

βίβλος γενέσεως

/the/_scroll ˱of˲_/the/_birth

Here, the phrase book of the genealogy could refer to: (1) just the list of Jesus’ ancestors that follows in 1:2–17. Alternate translation: “The book of the ancestry” (2) the list of Jesus’ ancestors as well as information about his birth and childhood (see 1:2–2:23). Alternate translation: “The book of the ancestors and birth”

Note 2 topic: figures-of-speech / possession

βίβλος γενέσεως Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ

/the/_scroll ˱of˲_/the/_birth ˱of˲_Jesus Christ

Here, Matthew is using the possessive form to describe a book that contains the genealogy that lists the ancestors of Jesus Christ. If this is not clear in your language, you could express the idea in another way. Alternate translation: “The book that contains the genealogy concerning Jesus Christ”

Note 3 topic: figures-of-speech / metonymy

βίβλος

/the/_scroll

Here, book represents a written record. If it would be helpful in your language, you could use an equivalent expression from your language or state the meaning plainly. Alternate translation: “The written record” or “The list”

Note 4 topic: figures-of-speech / metaphor

υἱοῦ Δαυεὶδ, υἱοῦ Ἀβραάμ

son son (Some words not found in SR-GNT: βίβλος γενέσεως Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ υἱοῦ Δαυὶδ υἱοῦ Ἀβραάμ)

Here Matthew is speaking of a male descendant as if he were a son. If it would be clearer in your language, you could state the meaning plainly. Alternate translation: “who is descended from David, who is descended from Abraham”

Note 5 topic: figures-of-speech / explicit

υἱοῦ Ἀβραάμ

son son ˱of˲_Abraham

Here Matthew could mean: (1) that David is a son of Abraham. Alternate translation: “who was a son of Abraham” (2) that Jesus is a son of Abraham. Alternate translation: “and also son of Abraham”
