Luke 1:39-45, KJV: “39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; 40 and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. 41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 and she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. 43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.”
As soon as Mary found out she was pregnant, she quickly went to visit her relative, Elisabeth. Seeing that what the Angel Gabriel said was true was a confirmation for her.
In fact, when Mary came into the home, the baby in Elisabeth, who would grow up to be called John the Baptist, leaped inside Elisabeth, as there were going to be prophetic and wondrous things done through the two babies that were inside Mary and Elisabeth.
Mary stayed until about the end of Elisabeth's pregnancy and then went home. Probably on her mind was what should she tell Joseph, as she was barely pregnant when she left, but by 3 months, she would be soon showing.
On Friday, December 10, we will see Joseph's reaction to all of this news (and how he finds out). Be sure to come back to our blog then.
