59 On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him Zechariah after his father.
57 Now the time came for Elizabeth to give birth, and she bore a son.
So many years of Christmas stories. Sixteen years ago, was “The Fire Keeper”
46 And Mary said,
‘My soul magnifies the Lord,
39In those days Mary set out and went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country, 40where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.
38Then Mary said, ‘Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.’ Then the angel departed from her.
26In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, 27to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28And he came to her and said, ‘Greetings, favoured one! The Lord is with you.’
24 After those days his wife Elizabeth conceived, and for five months she remained in seclusion.
21 Meanwhile, the people were waiting for Zechariah, and wondered at his delay in the sanctuary.
13But the angel said to Zechariah, ‘Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you will name him John. 14You will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, 15for he will be great in the sight of the Lord.
