1. Zechariah and Elizabeth
1. Zechariah and Elizabeth wanted to have a child
In the time of King Herod (King of Judea), the Jews expected the coming of the Messiah or Savior foretold by the prophets. One of the priests that provided service in the Temple was Zechariah and his wife was Elizabeth. They were very pious and elderly.
They were sad because they could not have children and asked God to send them a baby.
