Matthew 1:1 The Passion Translation (TPT)

From Abraham to Christ

This is the scroll of the lineage and birth[a] of Jesus,[b] the Anointed One, the son of David and descendant of Abraham.

Footnotes:

  1. Matthew 1:1 Or “the book of the origin (genesis) of Jesus Christ.” The Greek text has no definite article (“This is the”) and is most likely to be considered as a caption or title. The Son of God is eternal and had no beginning (John 1:1; 1 John 1:1). The entire book of Matthew presents the beginning of the glorious story of Jesus, God’s Anointed One. The genealogy given by Matthew presents the legal claim of Jesus to be King through the lineage of David from Joseph all the way back to the promises given to Abraham. Some believe Luke’s account gives the genealogy of Jesus from Mary’s lineage through David all the way back to Adam.
  2. Matthew 1:1 The Hebrew name for Jesus is Yeshua and means “Yahweh is salvation.”
