The birth of jesus is only in matthew and luke. not in mark or john.





To understand, you have to know both the Matthew

version & the Luke version


Blood trail in Matthew: National


(Joseph descended from David through his son




Matthew’s gospel is written to the Jewish community

Matthew’s genealogy presents Jesus as the second David,

a son of Abraham.


Matthew began Jesus’ lineage with Abraham and named

each father in 41 generations (Jesus the 42nd) in

Matthew 1:1 – 1:16



– 42 weeks in Revelation

– 42 weeks in Daniel

– Jackie Robinson


Blood trail in Luke: Human


(The genealogy in Luke is recorded with Joseph’s

name, but this lineage was Mary’s line.)

Luke’s gospel is written to a non-Jewish audience


Luke’s genealogy presents Jesus as the second Adam, a

son of God.


Luke, the genealogy begins with Jesus, the son of Joseph,

and follows his line back to Adam who was the first son

of God. 77 generations are recorded. Luke 1


Psalms 1:1-2 NKJV


Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the

ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in

the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of

the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.



Psalm 2:1 KJV


Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a


vain thing?



meditates & imagine = same Hebrew word


Meditation: the dedication to be consecrated to what you

think and how you think

Imagination Realm = Meditation Realm


Gabriel Shows Up to Mary


Luke 1:26-27 NKJV


Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by

God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin

betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the

house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And

having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly

favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you


among women!”


Luke 1:34 NKJV


But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying,

and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30 Then

the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you

have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will

conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall

call His name Jesus. 32 He will be great, and will be

called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give

Him the throne of His father David. 33 And He will reign

over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there


will be no end.” 34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How


can this be, since I do not know a man?”


Mary wasn’t stupid for asking this question. She was

asking “how can I get with the Lord’s program concerning

this matter.


Luke 1:35 NKJV


And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy

Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the

Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that

Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of




“Holy Spirit is going to come upon you” means to carry

the mantle of the Holy Spirit

“Overshadow” – what’s happening in the spirit is bigger

than what’s going on in the natural


“She didn’t become pregnant from a sexual act, she

became pregnant by receiving the word of God.”


I Peter 1:23-25 NKJV


having been born again, not of corruptible seed but

incorruptible, through the word of God which lives

and abides forever, because “All flesh is as grass, And

all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.

Not a sexual encounter, it was an encounter with the

Word, which she then hid in her heart, she incubated it.


Mary didn’t tell anyone.


Luke 1:36-37 NKJV


Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived

a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month

for her who was called barren. 37 For with God


nothing will be impossible.”


The Lord gave her a prophetic sign for confirmation.

(Elizabeth pregnant in her old age)


Luke 1:41-45 NKJV


And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of

Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and

Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 Then she


spoke out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you

among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!

43 But why is this granted to me, that the mother of

my Lord should come to me? 44 For indeed, as soon as

the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the

babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45 Blessed is she who

believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things


which were told her from the Lord.”


Elizabeth confirmed the word that the Lord gave to Mary.

Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

The baby in her womb (John the Baptist) was filled with

the Holy Spirit

Luke 1:15 NIV – for he will be great in the sight of the

Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented

drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even


before he is born.


The evil of abortion

– those who serve baal support abortion

Do not partner with a spirit of Herod

Do not partner with a spirit of pharaoh


Pray that your children/grandchildren are filled with the

Holy Spirit before they are even born!


Luke 1:57-58 NKJV


Now Elizabeth’s full time came for her to be

delivered, and she brought forth a son. 58 When her

neighbors and relatives heard how the Lord had

shown great mercy to her, they rejoiced with her.

Elizabeth kept her pregnancy secret // her baby was

thought to be dead

A prophetic sign the Lord gave was the naming of John

the Baptist. This is why when Zacharias, having been

mute, wrote down the same name for their newborn that

Elizabeth gave, people marveled.


Luke 1:60, 62-63 NKJV


60 His mother answered and said, “No; he shall be

called John.”

62 they made signs to his father—what he would have

him called. 63 And he asked for a writing tablet, and

wrote, saying, “His name is John.” So they all



Both Mary & Elizabeth are really good at hiding

something and incubating a word until they see it made



Mary didn’t tell Joseph.


Matthew 1:18-19 NKJV


Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His

mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they

came together, she was found with child of the Holy

Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man,

and not wanting to make her a public example, was


minded to put her away secretly.


Joseph was MEDITATING –

– “while he thought about these things”

– he had a dream

– this was another prophetic sign for Mary


Matthew 1:20-21 NKJV


But while he thought about these things, behold, an

angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying,

“Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you

Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of

the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and

you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His


people from their sins.”


Shepherds Show Up in Luke


Luke 2:13-14 NKJV


And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the

heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 “Glory to God

in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”


Luke 2:15-19 NKJV


So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into

heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us

now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to

pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they

came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the

Babe lying in a manger. 17 Now when they had seen Him,

they made widely known the saying which was told them

concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it

marveled at those things which were told them by the

shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things and


pondered them in her heart.


Another prophetic sign for Joseph and Mary when the

shepherds praised King Jesus at His birth.


Wise Men Show Up in Matthew

Matthew 2:1-2 NKJV

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the

days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East

came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been

born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the

East and have come to worship Him.”


Matthew 2:9-11 NKJV

When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the

star which they had seen in the East went before them, till

it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10

When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly

great joy. 11 And when they had come into the house,

they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell

down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened

their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold,

frankincense, and myrrh.

– The wise men probably were led straight to Nazareth by

the star. Jesus was born in Bethlehem but did not

necessarily stay there.


Matthew 2:16 NKJV – Then Herod, when he saw that he

was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry;

and he sent forth and put to death all the male children

who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two

years old and under, according to the time which he had

determined from the wise men.


– Jesus was around 2 years old because the time period the

wise men gave to Herod on first seeing the star was 2

years back (that’s the age group Herod targeted for death)
