Luke 1 and 2
Interview with Elizabeth
HADDON: Elizabeth, thank you for joining us here at Discover the Word.
ELIZABETH: I am honored to be here with you.
HADDON: You have an amazing story—in fact, the story of a miracle. Tell us how it started.
ELIZABETH: Well, as a young girl in my early teens I married an older man, Zacharias, who served as a priest in our temple here in Jerusalem. Of course I expected to have children with him—that was the hope and expectation of every young woman in Israel in my day. But it didn’t happen. Year after year after year Zacharias and I kept trying to have a baby—and year after year after year we were disappointed. If you haven’t gone through that yourself, I’m not sure you can know how crushing this was for us.
