01:01 .. Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things accomplished among us
01:02 .. just as they were handed down to us by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word
01:03 .. It seemed fitting for me as well .. having investigated everything carefully from the beginning ..
......... to write it out for you in consecutive order .. most excellent Theophilus
01:04 .. so that you may know the exact truth about the things you have been taught

.................. birth of John the Baptist foretold

01:05 .. In the days of Herod .. king of Judea .. there was a priest named Zacharias .. of the division of Abijah ..
......... and he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron .. and her name was Elizabeth
01:06 .. they were both righteous in the sight of God .. walking blamelessly in all the commandments and requirements of the Lord
01:07 .. but they had no child .. because Elizabeth was barren .. and they were both advanced in years

01:08 .. now it happened that while he was performing his priestly service before God in the appointed order of his division
01:09 .. according to the custom of the priestly office .. he was chosen by lot to enter the temple of the Lord and burn incense
01:10 .. and the whole multitude of the people were in prayer outside at the hour of the incense offering
01:11 .. and an angel of the Lord appeared to him .. standing to the right of the altar of incense
01:12 .. Zacharias was troubled when he saw the angel .. and fear gripped him
01:13 .. but the angel said to him . . . do not be afraid .. Zacharias .. for your petition has been heard ..
......... and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son .. and you will give him the name John
01:14 .. you will have joy and gladness .. and many will rejoice at his birth
01:15 .. for he will be great in the sight of the Lord .. and he will drink no wine or liquor ..
......... and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother’s womb
01:16 .. and he will turn many of the sons of Israel back to the Lord their God
01:17 .. It is he who will ago as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah ..
......... to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children .. and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous ..
......... so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord
01:18 .. Zacharias said to the angel . . . how will I know this for certain .. for I am an old man and my wife is advanced in years
01:19 .. the angel answered and said to him .. I am Gabriel .. who stands in the presence of God ..
......... and I have been sent to speak to you and to bring you this good news
01:20 .. and behold .. you shall be silent and unable to speak until the day when these things take place ..
......... because you did not believe my words .. which will be fulfilled in their proper time
01:21 .. the people were waiting for Zacharias .. and were wondering at his delay in the temple
01:22 .. but when he came out .. he was unable to speak to them .. and they realized that he had seen a vision in the temple ..
......... and he kept making signs to them .. and remained mute
01:23 .. when the days of his priestly service were ended .. he went back home
01:24 .. after these days Elizabeth his wife became pregnant .. and she kept herself in seclusion for five months .. saying . . .
01:25 .. this is the way the Lord has dealt with me in the days when he looked with favor upon me ..
......... to take away my disgrace among men

.................. Jesus’ birth foretold

01:26 .. now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth ..... Charles Lawson
01:27 .. to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph .. of the descendants of David .. and the virgin’s name was Mary
01:28 .. and coming in .. he said to her . . . greetings .. favored one .. the Lord is with you
01:29 .. but she was very perplexed at this statement .. and kept pondering what kind of salutation this was
01:30 .. the angel said to her . . . do not be afraid .. Mary .. for you have found favor with God
01:31 .. and behold .. you will conceive in your womb and bear a son .. and you shall name him Jesus
01:32 .. he will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High .. and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David
01:33 .. and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever .. and his kingdom will have no end
01:34 .. Mary said to the angel . . . how can this be .. since I am a virgin
01:35 .. the angel answered and said to her . . . the Holy Spirit will come upon you ..
......... and the power of the Most High will overshadow you ..
......... and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God

01:36 .. and behold .. even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age .. and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month
01:37 .. for nothing will be impossible with God
01:38 .. and Mary said . . . behold .. the bondslave of the Lord .. may it be done to me according to your word ..
......... and the angel departed from her

.................. Mary visits Elizabeth

01:39 .. now at this time Mary arose and went in a hurry to the hill country .. to a city of Judah
01:40 .. and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth
01:41 .. when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting .. the baby leaped in her womb .. and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit
01:42 .. and she cried out with a loud voice and said . . . blessed are you among women .. and blessed is the fruit of your womb
01:43 .. and how has it happened to me .. that the mother of my Lord would come to me
01:44 .. for behold .. when the sound of your greeting reached my ears .. the baby leaped in my womb for joy
01:45 .. and blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord

.................. the magnificat

01:46 .. and Mary said . . . my soul exalts the Lord
01:47 .. and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior
01:48 .. for he has had regard for the humble state of His bondslave .. for behold .. from this time on all generations will count me blessed
01:49 .. for the Mighty One has done great things for me .. and holy is his name
01:50 .. and his mercy is upon generation after generation toward those who fear him
01:51 .. he has done mighty deeds with his arm .. he has scattered those who were proud in the thoughts of their heart
01:52 .. he has brought down rulers from their thrones .. and has exalted those who were humble
01:53 .. he has filled the hungry with good things .. and sent away the rich empty-handed
01:54 .. he has given help to Israel his servant .. In remembrance of his mercy
01:55 .. as he spoke to our fathers .. to Abraham and his descendants forever

01:56 .. and Mary stayed with her about three months .. and then returned to her home

.................. John Is born

01:57 .. now the time had come for Elizabeth to give birth .. and she gave birth to a son
01:58 .. her neighbors and her relatives heard that the Lord had displayed his great mercy toward her ..
......... and they were rejoicing with her
01:59 .. and it happened that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child ..
......... and they were going to call him Zacharias .. after his father
01:60 .. but his mother answered and said . . . no indeed .. but he shall be called John
01:61 .. and they said to her . . . there is no one among your relatives who is called by that name
01:62 .. and they made signs to his father .. as to what he wanted him called
01:63 .. and he asked for a tablet and wrote as follows .. his name is John .. and they were all astonished
01:64 .. and at once his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed .. and he began to speak in praise of God
01:65 .. fear came on all those living around them .. and all these matters were being talked about in all the hill country of Judea
01:66 .. all who heard them kept them in mind .. saying . . . what then will this child turn out to be ..
......... for the hand of the Lord was certainly with him

.................. Zacharias’s prophecy

01:67 .. and his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit .. and prophesied .. saying . . .
01:68 .. blessed be the Lord God of Israel .. for he has visited us and accomplished redemption for his people
01:69 .. and has raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of David his servant
01:70 .. as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets from of old
01:71 .. salvation from our enemies .. and from the hand of all who hate us
01:72 .. to show mercy toward our fathers .. and to remember his holy covenant
01:73 .. the oath which he swore to Abraham our father
01:74 .. to grant us that we .. being rescued from the hand of our enemies .. might serve him without fear
01:75 .. In holiness and righteousness before him all our days
01:76 .. and you .. child .. will be called the prophet of the Most High .. for you will go on before the Lord to prepare his ways
01:77 .. to give to his people the knowledge of salvation .. by the forgiveness of their sins
01:78 .. because of the tender mercy of our God .. with which the sunrise from on high will visit us
01:79 .. to shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death .. to guide our feet into the way of peace
01:80 .. and the child continued to grow and to become strong in spirit ..
......... and he lived in the deserts until the day of his public appearance to Israel

John .. the forerunner of Jesus .. came to earth by divine appointment and arrangement .. Jesus .. the Christ was born of a virgin .. conceived of the Holy Ghost .. and was therefore the Son of God to whom was promised the throne of his father .. David . . . . v 31-32 the name “Jesus” (Savior) links him to humanity and suggests his career as prophet .. he is conspicuous as “Jesus” up to his resurrection. “Christ” (anointed One) links him to prophecy which he came to fulfill and suggests his work as priest atoning for sin .. “Lord” (the Jehovah name applied to him) links him with deity and suggests his Kingship .. he is coming again to rule
