Little John is born in the family of Elisabeth and Zechariah, the relatives of Mary. It’s an extraordinary story, because Zechariah wasn’t able to speak, until the birth of his son. Zechariah is a poet and wrote a beautiful song about his son. ‘You, my child, will be called a prophet of the Highest God. You will go ahead of the Lord to prepare his road for him, to tell his people that they will be saved.’ Mary is taking time to process it all. There is so much to think about!
