Ein Kerem - Church of St John - interior view



The altar may bring to mind the incense altar in the Temple, where the old priest Zacharias was officiating. An angel announced to him that he and his long barren wife were to have a son, "and you will give him the name John." Zacharias doubted what he had heard, and so the angel struck him dumb until the thing should come to pass.
