Luke 1:5-7
When Herod was king of Judea, there was a Jewish priest named Zechariah. He was a member of the priestly order of Abijah, and his wife, Elizabeth, was also from the priestly line of Aaron. Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous in God’s eyes, careful to obey all of the Lord’s commandments and regulations. They had no children because Elizabeth was unable to conceive, and they were both very old.

Zechariah and Elizabeth would eventually become parents. Their son, John the Baptist, would prepare the way for Jesus. This scenario sounds familiar, doesn't it? Abram and Sarai faced a similar challenge, and yet God promised to make Abram "the father of many nations". Elizabeth will give birth to a son, and that son will be a Levitical priest (had to be 30 years of age) just in time to baptize Jesus Christ. (Numbers 4:3) This is just one of the many miracles that prepares the way for the revealing of Jesus Christ to the world.
