Luke 1:1-10 GW

1 Many have attempted to write about what had taken place among us.
2 They received their information from those who had been eyewitnesses and servants of God's word from the beginning, and they passed it on to us.
3 I, too, have followed everything closely from the beginning. So I thought it would be a good idea to write an orderly account for Your Excellency, Theophilus.
4 In this way you will know that what you've been told is true.
5 When Herod was king of Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the division of priests named after Abijah. Zechariah's wife Elizabeth was a descendant of Aaron.
6 Zechariah and Elizabeth had God's approval. They followed all the Lord's commands and regulations perfectly.
7 Yet, they never had any children because Elizabeth couldn't become pregnant. Both of them were too old to have children.
8 Zechariah was on duty with his division of priests. As he served in God's presence,
9 he was chosen by priestly custom to go into the Lord's temple to burn incense.
10 All the people were praying outside while he was burning incense.
