Luke 1:5-25 ‘God’s big surprise’
Sermon, December 7th, 2013

Zachariah and Elizabeth are old in years and have not been blessed with children. Zachariah is serving as a priest in the Temple when an angel appears before him and reveals that he and Elizabeth will become parents. They will have a son called John who will ‘prepare the way for the Lord’. John’s birth is God’s big surprise for them.
