THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 1 - Verse 18

Verse 18. On this wise. Thus. In this manner.

Espoused. Betrothed, or engaged to be married. There was commonly an interval of ten or twelve months, among the Jews, between the contract of marriage and the celebration of the nuptials, see Ge 24:55; Jud 14:8, yet such was the nature of this engagement, that unfaithfulness to each other was deemed adultery. See De 22:25,28.

With child of the Holy Ghost. See Barnes "Lu 1:35".

{u} "birth of Jesus" Lu 1:27 {*} "espoused to Joseph" "Fifth year before the account called A.D."
