Zachariah the High Priest was the father of John the Baptist, who lived under the reign of Herod. The name Zachariah in Hebrew means “he who remembers the Lord and whom the Lord remembers”. He was not simply a priest, but the High Priest who could enter the Holy of Holies. His wife was named Elizabeth. Because of his wife’s barrenness, they were a childless couple. According to tradition, one day, when he went into the temple to offer incense, an angel of the Lord appeared before him and proclaimed to him that his wife would give birth to a son and he would be named John. Zachariah skipped with joy, but he was not immediately convinced, knowing that his wife was barren and was already of advanced age. Then the angel told him that he would be unable to speak until the will of God had come to pass. Indeed, Elizabeth conceived and gave birth to a son. When the time came to give the child a name, Zachariah wrote on a tablet the name that the angel had told him: John. Immediately, he regained his ability to speak and everyone gave glory to God. Of course, it is also worth mentioning that this divine intervention happened to Zachariah, because he was righteous before the Lord and lived according to His commandments and promises. The memory of the Prophet Zachariah and his wife Elizabeth is celebrated by the Orthodox Church on the 5th of September. Work of ARTIS GILDING AND RESTORING.
