Luke Chapter 1:1-4
vv. 1-4 Introduction

    1Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled[a] among us, 2just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. 3Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, 4so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
Luke Chapter 1:5-25
vv. 5-25 The Birth of John the Baptist Foretold

    5In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. 6Both of them were upright in the sight of God, observing all the Lord's commandments and regulations blamelessly. 7But they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren; and they were both well along in years.
   8Once when Zechariah's division was on duty and he was serving as priest before God, 9he was chosen by lot, according to the custom of the priesthood, to go into the temple of the Lord and burn incense. 10And when the time for the burning of incense came, all the assembled worshipers were praying outside.
    11Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. 12When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. 13But the angel said to him: "Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John. 14He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth, 15for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth.[b] 16Many of the people of Israel will he bring back to the Lord their God. 17And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
   18Zechariah asked the angel, "How can I be sure of this? I am an old man and my wife is well along in years."
    19The angel answered, "I am Gabriel. I stand in the presence of God, and I have been sent to speak to you and to tell you this good news. 20And now you will be silent and not able to speak until the day this happens, because you did not believe my words, which will come true at their proper time."
    21Meanwhile, the people were waiting for Zechariah and wondering why he stayed so long in the temple. 22When he came out, he could not speak to them. They realized he had seen a vision in the temple, for he kept making signs to them but remained unable to speak.
    23When his time of service was completed, he returned home. 24After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. 25"The Lord has done this for me," she said. "In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people."
Luke Chapter 1:26-38
vv. 26-38 The Birth of Jesus Foretold

    26In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. 28The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."
    29Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."
    34"How will this be," Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?"
    35The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[c] the Son of God. 36Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. 37For nothing is impossible with God."
    38"I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her.
Luke Chapter 1:39-45
vv. 39- 45 Mary Visits Elizabeth

    39At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth. 41When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42In a loud voice she exclaimed: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"
Luke Chapter 1:46-56
vv. 46-56 Mary's Song

    46And Mary said: 
   "My soul glorifies the Lord 
       47and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 
    48for he has been mindful 
      of the humble state of his servant. 
   From now on all generations will call me blessed, 
       49for the Mighty One has done great things for me— 
      holy is his name. 
    50His mercy extends to those who fear him, 
      from generation to generation. 
    51He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; 
      he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. 
    52He has brought down rulers from their thrones 
      but has lifted up the humble. 
    53He has filled the hungry with good things 
      but has sent the rich away empty. 
    54He has helped his servant Israel, 
      remembering to be merciful 
    55to Abraham and his descendants forever, 
      even as he said to our fathers."

   56Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.
Luke Chapter 1:57-66
vv. 57-66 The Birth of John the Baptist

    57When it was time for Elizabeth to have her baby, she gave birth to a son. 58Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy.
    59On the eighth day they came to circumcise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah, 60but his mother spoke up and said, "No! He is to be called John."
    61They said to her, "There is no one among your relatives who has that name."
    62Then they made signs to his father, to find out what he would like to name the child. 63He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone's astonishment he wrote, "His name is John." 64Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue was loosed, and he began to speak, praising God. 65The neighbors were all filled with awe, and throughout the hill country of Judea people were talking about all these things. 66Everyone who heard this wondered about it, asking, "What then is this child going to be?" For the Lord's hand was with him.
Luke Chapter 1:67-80
vv. 67-80 Zechariah's Song
    67His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied: 
    68"Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, 
      because he has come and has redeemed his people. 
    69He has raised up a horn[d] of salvation for us 
      in the house of his servant David 
    70(as he said through his holy prophets of long ago), 
    71salvation from our enemies 
      and from the hand of all who hate us— 
    72to show mercy to our fathers 
      and to remember his holy covenant, 
    73the oath he swore to our father Abraham: 
    74to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, 
      and to enable us to serve him without fear 
    75in holiness and righteousness before him all our days. 
    76And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; 
      for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, 
    77to give his people the knowledge of salvation 
      through the forgiveness of their sins, 
    78because of the tender mercy of our God, 
      by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven 
    79to shine on those living in darkness 
      and in the shadow of death, 
   to guide our feet into the path of peace."

    80And the child grew and became strong in spirit; and he lived in the desert until he appeared publicly to Israel.
