This week, we see Mary and Elizabeth meet for the first time as pregnant women. Mary is young, unmarried, and carrying Jesus in her womb. Her relative, Elizabeth, is old, married, and carrying John the Baptizer in her womb. Mary makes the roughly 100-mile journey to see Elizabeth, and upon meeting amazing things happen. John is filled with Spirit, as is his mother, and they worship the unborn Jesus. Furthermore, we see that Dr. Luke the author, guided by the Holy Spirit, clearly speaks of life beginning in the womb and God saving and calling people even from their mother’s womb.
