Luke 1:59-66

The Word of God

On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him Zechariah after his father. But his mother said, ‘No; he is to be called John.’ They said to her, ‘None of your relatives has this name.’ Then they began motioning to his father to find out what name he wanted to give him. He asked for a writing-tablet and wrote, ‘His name is John.’ And all of them were amazed. Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue freed, and he began to speak, praising God. Fear came over all their neighbours, and all these things were talked about throughout the entire hill country of Judea. All who heard them pondered them and said, ‘What then will this child become?’ For, indeed, the hand of the Lord was with him.

    • The neighbours of Elizabeth and Zechariah presumed that family traditions would continue – Zechariah was, after all, an establishment figure. These new parents were old enough and wise enough to know that their child deserved a new name – they knew that God works in new ways. I consider how I may limit myself or other people by my expectations, habits and traditions.
