Luke 3:23b-38

The beginning of the good message of Jesus Christ.
Mark 1:1

In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and God was the Word.
This was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him not one thing came to be which has come to be.

In him was life,
and the life was the light of human beings;
and the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not comprehended it.
John 1:1-5

It was the true light,
which enlightens every person, coming into the world.

He was in the world,
and the world through him came to be,
and the world did not know him.
He came to his own,
and his own did not accept him.

But as many as did accept him,
he gave them authority to become children of God,
to those believing in his name,
who were born not from blood nor from the will of flesh
nor from the will of man, but from God.

And the Word became flesh and resided among us,
and we saw his glory,
glory as the one who came from the Father,
full of grace and truth.
John 1:9-14

Since many have undertaken to draw up a narrative
about the matters that have been fully carried out among us,
as the eyewitnesses and those who became servants of the word
gave them over to us from the beginning,
it seemed good to me also,
having investigated everything carefully from the top
in order to write to you, most excellent Theophilus,
so that you might recognize the certainty of the accounts
you have been instructed about.
Luke 1:1-4

These are the secret words which the living Jesus spoke,
and which Didymos Thomas wrote.
Thomas Preface

Book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ,
son of David, son of Abraham:
Abraham fathered Isaac,
and Isaac fathered Jacob,
and Jacob fathered Judah and his brothers,
and Judah father Perez and Zerah from Tamar,
and Perez father Hezron,
and Hezron fathered Ram,
and Ram fathered Amminadab,
and Amminadab fathered Nahshon,
and Nahshon fathered Salmon,
and Salmon fathered Boaz from Rahab,
and Boaz fathered Obed from Ruth,
and Obed fathered Jesse,
and Jesse fathered David the king.

And David fathered Solomon from Uriah's wife,
and Solomon fathered Rehoboam,
and Rehoboam fathered Abijah,
and Abijah fathered Asa,
and Asa fathered Jehoshaphat,
and Jehoshaphat fathered Joram,
and Joram fathered Uzziah,
and Uzziah fathered Jotham,
and Jotham fathered Ahaz,
and Ahaz fathered Hezekiah,
and Hezekiah fathered Manasseh,
and Manasseh fathered Amon,
and Amon fathered Josiah,
and Josiah fathered Jeconiah and his brothers
during the Babylonian deportation.

After the Babylonian deportation Jeconiah fathered Shealtiel,
and Shelatiel fathered Zerubbabel,
and Zerubbabel fathered Abiud,
and Abiud fathered Eliakim,
and Eliakim fathered Azor,
and Azor fathered Zadok,
and Zadok fathered Achim,
and Achim fathered Eliud,
and Eliud fathered Eleazar,
and Eleazar fathered Matthan,
and Matthan fathered Jacob,
and Jacob fathered Joseph, the husband of Mary,

Thus all the generations from Abraham until David were fourteen,
and from David until the Babylonian deportation were fourteen,
and from the Babylonian deportation
until the Christ were fourteen.
