Matthew 1:16 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

16 and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 1.16 Joseph’s, not Mary’s, descent is given here, as the Jews did not usually reckon descent through the mother. Joseph was the legal and presumed father, and it was this fact that conferred rights of inheritance, in this case, the fulfilment of the Messianic promises.
