“…Then he wrote, “His name is John.” Everyone was amazed…”

Luke 1:57-66 – John the Baptist Is Born

The time came for Elizabeth to have her baby. She gave birth to a son.  Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had been very kind to her. They shared her joy.  On the eighth day, they came to have the child circumcised. They were going to name him Zechariah, like his father.  But his mother spoke up. “No!” she said. “He must be called John.”

They said to her, “No one among your relatives has that name.”  Then they motioned to his father. They wanted to find out what he would like to name the child.  He asked for something to write on. Then he wrote, “His name is John.” Everyone was amazed.  Right away Zechariah could speak again. Right away he praised God.  All his neighbors were filled with fear and wonder. Throughout Judea’s hill country, people were talking about all these things.  Everyone who heard this wondered about it. And because the Lord was with John, they asked, “What is this child going to be?”

…Blessings to all… as we continue our journey to the birth of the Child Jesus… The Christ….cjlb…12/23/2017  (This is a 2nd posting for 12/23/2017 – so that we might ‘catch-up’ with the story)
