2 MatthewLuke  Matthew calls his writing “ The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.”  Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but the couple did not live together.  Joseph a “righteous” man and “son of David” decides to divorce Mary quietly.  Angel of the lord appears to Joseph in a dream and explains that the child was conceived through the holy spirit.  In the days of Herod, king of Judea, Gabriel is sent to Joseph and Mary in Nazareth.  Mary is “a virgin betrothed” to Joseph.  Angel informs Mary that she will bear a son, and God has chosen his name, Jesus.  Angel informs Mary that her conception will be by the Holy Spirit.  Angel tells Mary about Elizabeth's pregnancy, and Mary sets out for “a town of Judah” to visit Zechariah and Elizabeth.

3 MatthewLuke  God decides child’s name, Jesus, “because he will save his people from their sins.”  Child’s virgin birth takes place to fulfill a prophecy from Isaiah.  Child also receives the name Emmanuel, “God is with us.”  Joseph takes Mary “into his home” and has no relations with her until Jesus is born.  Jesus is born in “Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod.  Magi go to Herod to find out where the Messiah is to be born.  Mary worships God with canticle, and remains with Elizabeth for three months before returning home.  Caesar Augustus announces enrollment, the first enrollment, when Quirinius is governor of Syria.  Joseph and Mary leave Nazareth and go to Bethlehem to be enrolled, because there was no room for them in the inn.  An angel of the Lord tells shepherds “in the area” that “in the city a savior has been born,” who is the Messiah.

4 MatthewLuke  Herod learns the approximate time of the Messiah’s birth from the magi, and asks them to return to him when they find him.  Magi follow star to the “house” where Mary and the child are. [as the “home”]  Magi present gifts of gold, frankincense, myrrh  Magi are warned in a dream no to return to Herod.  Joseph is warned in a dream to flee to Egypt with the child and Mary, to avoid Herod’s attempt to destroy the child.  A “multitude of the heavenly host” appears with the angel, and praises God.  Shepherds got to Bethlehem, and tell Mary what they were told.  On the eighth day, Jesus is circumcised and given his name.  Mary “purifies” herself by waiting the required number of days (forty), then takes Jesus to the temple in Jerusalem to be consecrated (as first-born) to the Lord.

5 MatthewLuke  Joseph takes his family to Egypt, staying until Herod dies, fulfilling a prophecy from Hosea, “Out of Egypt I called my son”.  Herod orders the death of al the boys two years and under in and around Bethlehem bases on the time given to him by the magi, fulfilling a prophecy from Jeremiah.  Joseph is warned in a dream to leave Egypt and return to Israel.  Joseph is warned in a dream not to go to Judea, because Archelaus (Herods son) is there, so he goes to Nazareth in Galilee.  Simeon, a “righteous and devout” man, identifies the infant Jesus as the Messiah, and tells Mary and Joseph about the child’s destiny.  Anna, the prophetess, comes forward and speaks “about the child”.  Joseph and Mary return to Nazareth after they have fulfilled the prescriptions of the law,” and Jesus grows up there.
