One of Professor Montgomery's sources is a document he refers to as Document 1. Montgomery believes that it is a "complete or extended version of St. Matthew's Gospel written in Syria around 150 A.D." The following is an English translation of the relevant portions of Document 1. The sections in parentheses are by Montgomery and are not in the original.
And David the King begat Solomon on the wife of Uriah the Hittite and Solomon begat Roboam, who begat Abia . . . (it goes on in this vein with several fragments missing until) -- And Jacob begat on . . . Joseph who begat on his wife Miriam, Jeshua, Judah and Jacob and Jeshua begat on his wife Miriam of Bethany (of the house) of Saul, a daughter . . . and on Mirium . . . (of the house) of Æthiopia a son . . . and (a daughter) and Joseph of the House of Arimathea begat on . . .
