Elizabeth – Who is she?

Who was Elizabeth?

What was her story?

Elizabeth is Eli-sheba. It means ‘God’s promise’, or ‘my God is generous’.

Her trust in God paid off.

Elizabeth becomes pregnant, Luke 1:5-25. Click scripture and read about Zechariah and Elizabeth.

Elizabeth was an righteious woman married to Zechariah, a member of the Jerusalem priesthood. She was past childbearing age, her husband was elderly, and she had given up hope for having any children. But Elizabeth’s life took an unanticipated turn. She became pregnant, to the surprise of everyone.

Luke 1:13-14 The angel said to him, “Don’t be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer. Your wife Elizabeth will have a son, and you will name him John. He will be your pride and joy, and many people will be glad that he was born.

Luke 1:24-25 Later, his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and didn’t go out in public for five months. She said, “The Lord has done this for me now. He has removed my public disgrace.”

Trusting and obeying Yahweh will bless you.
