Announcing the Forerunner, John the Baptist (1:5-25)

The announcement of John the Baptist's birth signals God's renewed activity on behalf of his people in light of promises made long ago. Many of the details of this event and those that follow in the infancy section recall events of the Old Testament. God is again at work to bring his promise to pass.
