Samuel Acevedo - Zacarias
In the days of Herod, king of Judea, there was a priest named Zacharias, of the class of Abijah. His wife was one of the daughters of Aaron and her name was Elizabeth. Both were righteous, the angel of God, and walked blameless in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord, but they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren, and both were already old.
It happened that when Zacharias exercised the priesthood before God according to the order of his class, according to the custom of the priesthood, it fell to him to offer the incense entering the sanctuary of the Lord, and all the crowd of the town was outside praying at the time of the incense. And an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing to the right of the altar of incense. And Zacharias was troubled when he saw him, and fear seized him, but the angel said to him, 'Zacarias, do not be afraid, for your prayer has been heard and your wife, Elizabeth, will give birth to you a son, and you will call his name, Juan. And Zacharias will have joy and joy and many will rejoice at his birth because he will be great before God. He will not drink wine or cider and will be filled with the holy spirit even from his mother's womb.
