“And…Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied…”
The Song of Zechariah in Luke 1:67-79, also known as the Benedictus, is a strong contender for being the greatest hymn ever uttered by human lips. Here is no ordinary hymn, for the Bible states that it owes its origin to Zechariah’s being “filled with the Holy Spirit.” The Spirit of God gave Zechariah the words to praise God for both Who He is and what He has done by His redeeming grace: “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He has visited and redeemed His people…” In bequeathing to us the Benedictus in the Scriptures, God the Holy Spirit has thus given us a divine blueprint and aid for divine praise and adoration.
This book unfolds the meaning of the Benedictus verse by verse. Reading it will enable you to enter into the praise and joy nurtured in Zechariah’s soul by God. The Song of Zechariah explains and applies this incomparable canticle in a way which is sure to enlighten your mind, warm your heart, lift your spirit and fuel the fire of devotion and praise.
