Rahm has one son and two daughters: Zacharias, Ilana, and Leah, all under 13.
Just as soon as Zacharias had written the words "His name is John," the power to hear and to speak came back to him.
The penalty for doubt was already operative; Zacharias was dumb.
But the vision of Simeon was wider than that of Zacharias, as that in turn was wider and clearer than the vision of Mary.
The man was John, son of Zacharias, soon to be known as the Baptist.
This coronation took place on May 1st; Zacharias did not live to see it, for he died on the preceding March 3rd.
It is the character given of Zacharias, and Elisabeth, and of Simeon.
Zacharias was assured that his prayer was heard, and that his wife Elizabeth should have a son to be named John.
And when Zacharias saw him he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.
Zacharias knew that this newly-born child should grow up to give God's message to the people.
