Barren Elisabeth

December 8, 2014

Elizabeth was well beyond child bearing age but God gave her a child in answer to many years of sadness and grief because she was barren. He used miracle baby to be the forerunner of Jesus.
Elizabeth and her husband had dearly longed for a child. They had prayed for one and the culture of the day had demanded they needed one. Yet no child came.
The miracle eventually happened and a pregnant and rather embarrassed Elizabeth hid herself for 5 months.

Luke 1:7
And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
