Zechariah thought he had reached the peak of his priestly duties when Gabriel's arrival changed the course of his life—and of human history. In light of the angel’s surprising message, Alistair Begg reassures us that God is always at work, even when circumstances seem impossible. Zechariah’s promised son, John the Baptist, would proclaim God’s call to repentance and the arrival of the Messiah. Today, his family’s story calls us, too, to repent of our unbelief and trust God’s promises.
