"excellent" sounds like perhaps he was someone of the Temple, but Luke does not say, so neither can we state it as fact. But, he was a convert to Christianity of Luke's, We can know that much as per Luke's words to him. cont.

    V. 36 - the angel Gabriel told Mary of Elisabeth's pregnancy. When you think on it, it seems 'odd' because now everybody concerned knows as soon as the couple knows. But then you think of the distance between Mary and Elis. and also their lives were just the same ol' same ol'; AND Elis. was 'old' so ...............
