Old Testament Reading – Isaiah 40:1-5
Epistle – Acts 13:13-26

The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke, the first chapter
Now the time came for Elizabeth to give birth, and she bore a son. And her
neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown great mercy to her, and
they rejoiced with her. And on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child.
And they would have called him Zechariah after his father, but his mother
answered, “No; he shall be called John.” And they said to her, “None of your
relatives is called by this name.” And they made signs to his father, inquiring what
he wanted him to be called. And he asked for a writing tablet and wrote, “His
name is John.” And they all wondered. And immediately his mouth was opened
and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, blessing God. And fear came on all their
neighbors. And all these things were talked about through all the hill country of
Judea, and all who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, “What then
will this child be?” For the hand of the Lord was with him.
