Luke 1:1-10 WNT

1 Seeing that many have attempted to draw up a narrative of the facts which are received with full assurance among us
2 on the authority of those who were from the beginning eye-witnesses and were devoted to the service of the divine Message,
3 it has seemed right to me also, after careful investigation of the facts from their commencement, to write for you, most noble Theophilus, a connected account,
4 that you may fully know the truth of the things which you have been taught by word of mouth.
5 There was in the time of Herod, the king of Judaea, a priest of the name of Zechariah, belonging to the class of Abijah. He had a wife who was a descendant of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.
6 They were both of them upright before God, blamelessly obeying all the Lord's precepts and ordinances.
7 But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren; and both of them were far advanced in life.
8 Now while he was doing priestly duty before God in the prescribed course of his class,
9 it fell to his lot--according to the custom of the priesthood--to go into the Sanctuary of the Lord and burn the incense;
10 and the whole multitude of the people were outside praying, at the hour of incense.
