Luke 1:78-80 The Passion Translation (TPT)

78 The splendor light of heaven’s glorious sunrise[a]
    is about to break upon us in holy visitation,
    all because the merciful heart of our God is so very tender.
79 The word from heaven will come to us[b]
    with dazzling light to shine upon those
    who live in darkness, near death’s dark shadow.[c]
    And he will illuminate the path that leads to the way of peace.”

80 Afterward, their son grew up and was strengthened by the Holy Spirit[d] and he grew in his love for God. John chose to live in the lonely wilderness until the day came when he was to be displayed publicly to Israel.
