they drew lots to determine who would enter the lords house. A man named Zachariah was the lucky man that God chose to enter his house.
Mary Pays a Visit
when Zachariah entered the room about to pray an angel came and he was terrified the angel told him not to be afraid and that God had heard his prayers and that his wife would give birth to a baby and his name is to be John. he will be a great man. don't let him drink alcohol or wine. Zachariah would not believe it and b/c he doubted it he could not speak until it happened
"His Name is John"
eventually Sara finds out that she will have a baby and she and Zachariah are over joyed, but Zachariah could not speak though every one knew he saw something but what?
John Preaches to the People
Mary goes to visit Elizabeth and when she speaks, John inside Elizabeths body jumps for joy and Elizabeth says "blesesd are you by the lord for my child jumped for joy when he heard you."
Elizabeth's child was born and people came over to celebrate then they asked what the baby's name would be they said oh defiantly Zachariah, then they turned to Zachariah and asked hey what is your baby's name going to be? he wrote on a stone tablet and it said "John" then just as he held it up he could speak! The people were shocked and thought God is doing something.
