One Heck of a Baby Announcement
Session 7.50 Starter
This familiar song from Zechariah is one heck of a baby announcement – and in reality, we know it is so much more than just the announcement of the birth of John. In the birth of his son, Zechariah saw the faithfulness of God, not only to him, but also to all of Israel. The story of John’s birth is one more piece of the story of God’s continued faithfulness to these people and to the covenant between God and Israel.
Scripture: Luke 1:68-79
‘Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for he has looked favourably on his people and redeemed them.
He has raised up a mighty saviour for us
in the house of his servant David,
as he spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old,
that we would be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us.
