The Second Sunday in Advent
Zechariah Praises God

Luke 1: 68 - 79

Zechariah the priest and his wife Elizabeth had wanted a child for a very long time; at long last God gave them a son, whose name was John. He would grow up to be John the Baptist.

When John was born, Zechariah knew that his birth was the beginning of a wonderful time on earth, the time when Jesus would live on earth as an ordinary person.

This is Zechariah's song of praise.

1. How does Zechariah's song begin?
[The song begins with praise to God.]

2. Which promise does Zechariah remember?
[Zechariah remembers God's promise to Abraham.]

3. Does Zechariah know what his son, John, will do?
[Yes. He says, You, my son . . . will go ahead of the Lord to get everything ready for him.]

4. What will happen to Zechariah's family?
[Zechariah says, "God's love and kindness will shine upon us like the sun that rises in the sky."]
