Dedication to Theophilus

1 Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that 1have been accomplished among us, 2 2just as those who 3from the beginning were 4eyewitnesses and 5ministers of 6the word 7have delivered them to us, 3 it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write 8an orderly account for you, 9most excellent 10Theophilus, 4 that you may have 11certainty concerning the things 12you have been taught.

Birth of John the Baptist Foretold

5 13In the days of Herod, king of Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah,a14of 15the division of Abijah. And he had a wife from the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth. 6 And they were both 16righteous before God, walking 17blamelessly in all the commandments and statutes of the Lord. 7 But they had no child, because 18Elizabeth was barren, and 19both were advanced in years.
