    Luke 1:13 Why did the angel sent by God to Zacharias tell him to call his coming son's name John which means "God's gift"? Why did the same angel who was sent by God to Mary tell her to call her coming son's name Jesus which means "savior" (1:31)? These names were prophetic. They were a message to us from God that he was going to give us a gift of our salvation through Jesus our Lord and savior.

    Names given by Angels identified their life purpose. The names identified who they were ordained by God. The words of the prophets of the old testament were to be full filled of the coming of the savior. Everything happened in accordance to the prophecy and could not be altered.

    1-80 above we learn of GOD's plan that would redeem the sinful human race from sin; This plan of GOD would require GOD to send HIS son into the world (through Mary) then allow HIS son to be sacrificed, thereby establishing the means for all sinners /mankind to have available to them SALVATION that they may be be Saved from the lake of fire.

    V.15; "For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, ..." How many people today seek to be great in the sight of man rather than seek to be great in the sight of God? Whoever will be great in the sight of God must be ready to apply Vs 15-17: Keep your self pure, be filled with the Holy Spirit, evangelize..
  • Daniel
    My spirit has rejoiced in God my savior. He has done great and wonderful things for me. Blessed is the name of God forever and ever who has given to us the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, his only son for us that we might have eternal life. Therefore let every man be reconciled to God, for he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth. Praise God forever.

    Verses 46-55~When we examine Mary's words, we see that her prayer shared the same expressions as Hannah had at 1 Samuel chapter 2. Mary was a keen student of God's Word.

    Thank God for Mary
    and Praise him for Jesus

    "Whereby shall I know this, for I am an old man...blah blah blah" An angel appears from our of the right side of the altar of incense, and you become filled with fear, and you hear the angel begin to tell you something absolutely wonderful; and with your very next breath you can't help but show how you have to maintain this stubborn false realism, and demand proof an angel from God is telling you?
  • A disciple
    "For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy." God breathed into man's nostrils the Breath of Life and he became a living soul. At the moment of conception, the living soul is replicated and begins to grow in the womb of its mother. The pure and innocent infant's soul rejoices at the voice of God's Blessed Elect because they have Jesus!
  • A disciple
    "Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.." Many of us at first glance, have it hard to see the difference between Mary's answer and Zachariah's. But while the words of both were so similar, God knew what was the thought and intention.
  • A disciple
    "Zachariah said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this?..And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God;.." It seems amazing to us how Zachariah could answer like that; to still be so willfully unbelieving even while experiencing a heavenly visitation! It is no virtue or superiority of intellect; but a moral error! We must be people who believe the truth.

    Luke was the best of the biographers of his day, bringing forth progenitors of Jesus and John, who would change the Spiritual landscape of Israel, God sending the High Priests, John and Jesus, being cousins, each having a role to play, each being miraculously born to righteous Jews! For the Jews sought out the Messiah to bring the word of God,to further their understanding of King of Kings, YHWH

    Verse 34: Mary did not have doubt, but she was inquiring how she would become pregnant without having sexual relations. Mary was not ashamed of her virginity.

    Verse 19: Zechariah doubted Gabriel's words. Although this message would have been hard to believe, Zechariah should have thought back to how Jehovah God blessed Abraham and Sarah with a child in their old age and that he still had the power to perform the same miracle.

    It sounds like Luke was talking to a special people, maybe even people in the medical profession.....but my most inward parts tells me he is talking to a nation of people....perhaps even his peers....

    Theophillus was not high priest at that time.
  • A disciple
    " But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity." If there is not a true repentance, and verifiable thorough-going conversion; if there is not an absolute and complete ceasing of sinning and turning one's back on the world, the flesh and the devil; all the church and Scripture quoting in the world will not get you into the kingdom of heaven!
  • A disciple
    "..it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto you in order, most excellent Theophilus, that you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you have been instructed." Theophilus was the High Priest at the time; and it was to confirm the fulfillment of the Scriptures, to those ordained to be the Keepers of the Holy Testimony.
  • A disciple
    "Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." "..every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God" 1 Jn. 4:1-6.
  • Irene123
    V. 3 - " ..... most excellent Theophulis; v.4 - "That thou mightiest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed." "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 ...............

    John the baptist would then be a cousin to Jesus

    The great King of Heaven-Jesus, is preparing to come down to this lowly, filthy, sins-soaked earth on His mission of redemption. Mary is blessed to be the channel of His birth and Elisabeth to bring forth John, the precursor prophet. All these plans have been in place since the beginning of time. Praise God.

    Kevin: Yes, Read Chapter 3.

    Would Zacharias and Elisabeth's son grow up to be known as John, the Baptist?
  • Brians
    guys we are able to keep God's commands
  • Ray321
    Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth ? I tell you , Nay; but rather division. Luke12:51. Jesus will separate the bad from the good. Jesus wants no part of evil . I really understand that verse.
