Elizabeths' baby

Luke Chapter 1

1:57 Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.    
1:58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.    
1:59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father.    
1:60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John.    
1:61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.    
1:62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called.    
1:63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all.    
1:64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.    
1:65 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judaea.
1:66 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him.
