‘You and your wife Elisabeth will soon have a baby boy. ‘You must call him John,’ said the angel. <br/>‘This can’t be true,’ said Zacharias. – Slide 4

We are too old to have a child.’<br/>‘To show that God sent me,’ said the angel, ‘You will not be able to talk until the baby is named John.’ – Slide 5

When Elisabeth was six months pregnant her cousin Mary came to visit her. As Mary called out, Elisabeth’s baby, in her tummy, was so happy he began to jump. – Slide 6
