Family Discussion Starter:
Who was John the Baptist? If you look back at Luke 1:5-25 you will find that John was the son of Zechariah and Elizabeth. He was a gift from God to an elderly couple who thought they were past child bearing years. He was to give his life in service to preparing the way for Jesus Christ. You will also find in Luke 1:39-45 that Mary visited Elizabeth when she was pregnant with Jesus and Elizabeth was pregnant with John. Jesus and John were cousins.
Key Idea: God has a plan for every person He creates including you.
