Matthew Chapter 1

Summary of Chapter

Jesus legal heritage (pedigree) is clearly stated (this would be of interest to Matthew's Jewish audience, showing that he was indeed a descendant of the kings). Mary is found to be pregnant, and Joseph knows it wasn't him. Before he can quietly divorce her, he is told by an angel that Mary is pregnant with God's own Son, so he takes her to be his wife.
