Storyboard Text

  • Zechariah in the Temple
  • An Angel of the Lord Appears to Zecariah
  • "Zeariah, you will have a son and will name him John. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit and will prepare a way for the Lord."
  • "How can this be? My wife and I are both old."
  • Zechariah Does Not Believe
  • "You will be unable speak until you son is born because you did not believe in what I told you."
  • Zechariah is chosen by lot to go into the temple and burn incense while others were praying outside.
  • Zechariah Leaves the Temple
  • Gabriel appears to Zechariah, who is startled and fearful, and tells him that is wife will have a son, even in her old age. 
  • Mary Visits Elizabeth
  • "Blessed are you, and the child you will bear."
  • Zecariah doubts that he will have a son, and because of this, Gabriel tells Zecariah that he will not be able to speak until he believes in what God has planned.
  • Zechariah Speaks Again
  • "Why name him John? There is no one in your family with this name?"
  • "He will be named John."
  • When Zechariah leaves the temple, he cannot speak and starts making hand motions. The people waiting realize that he has seen a vision.
  • "Why were you in the temple for so long?"
  • After Elizabeth becomes pregnant, she stays in seclusion for five months. During these months,Mary, who is pregnant with Jesus, visits Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary, the baby within her jumped.
  • "Elizabeth!"
  • Eight days after John was born, and after he was circumcised, he was going to be named Zechariah, after his father, but Elizabeth said he was to be named John. The people around wondered why he was to be called this because there was no relative with this name. They made signs to Zechariah, asking him what they would name the baby. At that moment, he wrote "His name is John." and he was able to speak.
