The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible (NRSV) was published in 1989 and has received the widest acclaim and broadest support from academics and church leaders of any modern English translation. It is the only Bible translation that is as widely ecumenical: The ecumenical NRSV Bible Translation Committee consists of thirty men and women who are among the top. Alternate title: The Epistle To Diognetus c. The Epistle to Diognetus is a well-crafted argument extolling the virtues of Christianity over paganism. It is difficult to determine the date of the letter, for it was never referred to in any known ancient writings, but it obviously dates from a period when Christianity was still regarded as a 'mystery' religion.

17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David to the carrying away to Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the carrying away to Babylon to the Christ are fourteen generations.
18Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened this way: his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they came together was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.
19Now Joseph her husband, being righteous and yet not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly.
20But while he was thinking about these things, Look!, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to favorably accept Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit.
21And she will give birth to a son, and you are to call his name Jesus,a for it is he who will save his people from their sins.”

22Now all this took place with the result that what was spoken by Yahwehb through the prophet was fulfilled, saying,
23Look!, the virgin will be with child, and will give birth to a son, and they will call his name Immanuel,c (which translated, means, “God with us”).
24Then Joseph, awaking from sleep, did as the angel of Yahweh commanded him and took to himself his wife.
25But he did not know her sexually until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
