Scripture Lesson: Luke 1:57-66

On this date in 2004 Chipper Jones anåd his wife Sharon welcome their second child into the world. The 7lb 14oz son is named Shea as a tribute to the New York ballpark where the Braves third baseman has enjoyed tremendous success.

Today’s Scripture has to do with the birth and naming of John the Baptist. Zachariah, John’s father, was silenced until John’s birth because he doubted the angel Gabriel when the angel came to tell him the news of John’s birth. As soon as Zachariah wrote the words at his dedication, his name is John, he was able to speak again. Everyone rejoiced at the great blessing for Zachariah and Elizabeth. The people recognized that God was with John and they wondered what God had in store for the child.

1. How did you get your name?

2. Why did you think Zachariah did not believe the angel, Gabriel?

3. Describe what you think Zachariah and Elizabeth felt?

Names were very important in biblical times and often told us a lot about the person. When God blesses you with something beyond belief, be sure to thank Him!
