What Do You Say After 9 Months of Silence?

“The Angel Appearing to Zacharias,” William Blake, 1799-1800, Met.

This Sunday, we’ll look at one event leading up to the birth of Jesus, namely, the birth of John the Baptist. When an angel told Zechariah that he and his wife would have a son in their old age, Zechariah didn’t believe it. He was made mute until John was born (Luke 1.5-25). As I studied these stories, I got to thinking, “What do you say after being unable to talk for nine months?”  We have the answer to that question in Luke 1.67-79. It’s a great model for turning away from unbelief.
