Luke Bible Background

By Don Ruhl

Zacharias had prayed that he and his wife would have a child, a son, and finally the Lord answered his prayer and sent an angel, while Zacharias worked in the temple, to tell him that he would have a son. When he had completed his duty, Luke wrote,

So it was, as soon as the days of his service were completed, that he departed to his own house (Luke 1.23). 

Thus, he and his wife had a son, who became the forerunner of the Lord Himself, preparing the hearts of the people to receive the King of Heaven.
