Zacharias is told that his elderly wife Elizabeth will bear a child, and that this child “will be great in the sight of the Lord” – the one predicted by the prophet Malachi who will be a forerunner before the coming of the Lord. Zachariah’s doubts leads to a period of dumbness that will end at the birth of the special baby – John the Baptist.
