    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:20

    Y pensando l en esto, he aquí el ngel del Seor se le aparece en sueos, diciendo: Jos, hijo de David, no temas de recibir a María tu mujer, porque lo que en ella es engendrado, del Espíritu Santo es.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 1:20

    Verse 20. That which is conceived (or formed) in her] So I think gennhqen should be translated in this
    place: as it appears that the human nature of Jesus Christ was a real creation in the womb of the virgin, by the power of the Holy Spirit. The angel of the Lord mentioned here was probably the angel Gabriel, who, six months before, bad been sent to Zacharias and Elisabeth, to announce the birth of Christ's forerunner, John the Baptist. See Luke i. 36.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. But while he thought on these things , etc.] While he was revolving them in his
    mind, considering what was most fit and proper to be done, whether to dismiss her publicly or privately; while he was consulting within himself the glory of God, the peace of his own conscience, and the credit of Mary, behold the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream ; probably the same Angel which appeared to Zacharias, and brought him tidings that his wife should have a son, and who also appeared to Mary, and acquainted her that she should conceive, and bring forth the Messiah, Whose name was Gabriel, ( Luke 1:11,19,36). If we will believe the Jews, this Angel must be Gabriel, since he is the Angel who they say amlj l[ anmmd is appointed over dreams; for he appeared to Joseph in a dream , which is one of the ways and methods in which the Lord, or an Angel of his, has appeared to the saints formerly, and has answered them, (see Genesis 31:11 1 Kings 3:5 1 Samuel 28:6,15) and is reckoned by the Jews one of the degrees or kinds of prophecy: and so the Angel here not only encourages Joseph to take to him his wife, saying Joseph, thou son of David ; which is said partly to attest his being of the house and lineage of David, and partly to raise his expectations and confirm his faith, that his wife should bring forth the promised son of David; and chiefly to engage his attention to what he was about to say, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife ; do not be afraid either that thou shalt offend the Lord, or bring any reproach or scandal upon thyself as if thou didst connive at an adulteress; but as she is thine espoused wife, solemnly betrothed to thee, take her home to thyself, live with her as thy wife, and openly avow her as such. To which he is encouraged by the following reason or argument, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost ; she has not been guilty of any criminal conversation with men; this conception of hers is of the Holy Ghost, and entirely owing to his coming upon her, and overshadowing her in a wonderful and miraculous manner. I say, the Angel not only encourages Joseph after this manner, but delivers something to him by way of prophecy, in the following verse.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-25 - Let us look to the circumstances under which the Son of
    God entere into this lower world, till we learn to despise the vain honours of this world, when compared with piety and holiness. The mystery of Christ's becoming man is to be adored, not curiously inquired into. It was so ordered that Christ should partake of our nature, yet that he should be pure from the defilement of original sin, which has bee communicated to all the race of Adam. Observe, it is the thoughtful not the unthinking, whom God will guide. God's time to come with instruction to his people, is when they are at a loss. Divine comfort most delight the soul when under the pressure of perplexed thoughts Joseph is told that Mary should bring forth the Saviour of the world He was to call his name Jesus, a Saviour. Jesus is the same name with Joshua. And the reason of that name is clear, for those whom Chris saves, he saves from their sins; from the guilt of sin by the merit of his death, and from the power of sin by the Spirit of his grace. I saving them from sin, he saves them from wrath and the curse, and all misery, here and hereafter. Christ came to save his people, not in their sins, but from their sins; and so to redeem them from among men to himself, who is separate from sinners. Joseph did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, speedily, without delay, and cheerfully without dispute. By applying the general rules of the written word, we should in all the steps of our lives, particularly the great turns of them, take direction from God, and we shall find this safe an comfortable __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:20 {An
    angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream} (aggelos kuriou kat' onar efane autwi). this expression (aggelos kuriou) is without the article in the New Testament except when, as in #1:24, there is reference to the angel previously mentioned. Sometimes in the Old Testament Jehovah Himself is represented by this phrase. Surely Joseph needed God's help if ever man did. If Jesus was really God's Son, Joseph was entitled to know this supreme fact that he might be just to both Mary and her Child. It was in a dream, but the message was distinct and decisive for Joseph. He is called "Son of David" as had been shown by Matthew in #Mt 1:16. Mary is called his "wife" (ten gunaika sou). He is told "not to become afraid" (ingressive first aorist passive subjunctive in prohibition, (me fobeqeis), "to take to his side" (paralabein, ingressive aorist active infinitive) her whom he had planned (enqumeqentos, genitive absolute again, from en and qumos) to send away with a writ of divorce. He had pondered and had planned as best he knew, but now God had called a halt and he had to decide whether he was willing to shelter Mary by marrying her and, if necessary, take upon himself whatever stigma might attach to her. Joseph was told that the child was begotten of the Holy Spirit and thus that Mary was innocent of any sin. But who would believe it now if he told it of her? Mary knew the truth and had not told him because she could not expect him to believe it.
