Luke 1:26-38

In Luke’s infancy narrative, he parallels the origins of John and Jesus. The angel Gabriel appears to both Zechariah and Mary to announce the surprising news about the births of John and Jesus. The angel assigns their names, and both are circumcised on the eighth day. Zechariah and Mary each express how they feel through the poetry of a canticle.

Blessed are you, Lord God. You have done great things for me, and I am so thankful.
