ELIZABETH (Gr. Elisabet, God is my oath, KJV Elisabeth). The wife of the priest Zechariah, herself of the lineage of Aaron (Luke 1:5-57). In fulfillment of God's promise, in her old age she bore a son, John the Baptist. She was a woman of unusual piety, faith, and spiritual gifts, whose witness to her cousin Mary must have been an incomparable encouragement. Luke appreciated the significant role of women in the history of redemption and emphasized the agency of the Holy Spirit in the life of Elizabeth.
