COMMENTARIES ON ST.
"The book of the generation of
Christ, the son of
David, the son of Abraham."
Abraham that He would
give two gifts to his children. One was a kingly spiritual
and the other material property as the birthright. These two gifts
as promised were inherited from
Abraham to Isaac, and
then to Jacob (Israel).
<2>At the time of his death, Jacob separated these
inheritances and gave
(kingly spiritual domination and lawgiving) to Judah, "The
shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
come..." (Gen. 49:10). The birthright was given to Joseph and his
seed. For more detail, read

<3>That is why the great king of the
Israel, King David, is from the tribe of Judah, and also
Esa, the King of the
(House of Judah)
is from the same tribe.
Abraham is the father
of all the Hebrews, so he is the father of
Esa also, and David was the king and from the tribe of Judah, so he is
also the father of
<4>That is why Esa who became
Christ is "the son of

Saying, what think ye of

He saith unto them, How then doth David
in spirit call him Lord, saying,
The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on
my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
If David then call him Lord, how is he

what is the answer? The answer is that

not even David or
Abraham. However, in a
fleshly sense, he was born from a mother with Jewish ancestry and
from the tribe of Judah. <8>Christ
also is a consciousness, and a person.
Esa was conceived from a
virgin, so in truth his birth was a miracle and no worldly man could
claim that he was his father. He was in
Consciousness even before coming to this world. He came to the
earth as an

he is called Emmanuel ("God
with us"). <10>But even an
Avatar does not know he is a
god-man until later on
in his life when he realizes himself and understands his mission.

Consciousness) and later on as Noah and
<12>In fact, as God
had promised to
"and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed," the only
way that all families of the earth could be blessed is by

the truth and blessing to them.

or the one who brought to them the blessings, is none other than

Reading of the generations (Matthew 1:2-15):
<15>With the explanation given about the
first verse, the reading of the generations seems useless. But as it
is described in
Holiest Book, the generations are used in the Bible
to show that it takes hundreds of years before humans come to a
higher understanding. In other words, it takes hundreds or thousands
of years before an evolutionary step can be fulfilled. So the human
should create patience in the process for His Will to be fulfilled.
"And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of
whom was born
Esa, who is called
Christ." (Matthew 1:16)
<16>Because Joseph married Mary and
participated in bringing up Esa,
he can be referred to as his earthly father. In truth he only was
Mary's husband, not
Esa's father. That is why
we hear about him very little in the gospels.
Esa, "who is called
Christ," was not
Christ in the beginning,
Christ after he overcame
the temptations in the desert. Although he was born from
Consciousness to the flesh (from spirit), he should have gone
through a regular life and overcome the flesh before realizing his
"So all the generations from
Abraham to David are
fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into
Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into
Babylon unto Christ are
fourteen generations." (Matthew 1:17)
<18>Therefore, it took forty-two generations
for the prophecy of Jacob (Israel)
to be fulfilled.

Christ was on this wise:

together, she was found with child of the

Holy Ghost. He had come from
to the flesh. He was an Avatar.
"Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and
not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her
away privily." (Matthew 1:19)
<20>Joseph, being just a man (not a
son of God), was
disturbed finding Mary with child. But because he was a just man and
did not want to create any problems for her publicly, he decided to
leave her without making her a public example, "put her away privily."
"But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the
Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of
David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which
is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost."
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
(): for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew
<21>However, Joseph was informed of the truth
that Mary was a chaste and pure woman, and he should not be afraid
of any unfaithfulness by her. The child was conceived through the
power of The

described before, his spiritual name was ()

"the savior (Shua) of Y'weh (),"
"...shall save his people...." His sacred name was revealed to
