Word has it that a joke went around Jerusalem back in the day. They said that it took Elizabeth a week to realize that Zechariah could not talk.
(Luk 1:20 KJV) And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season.It might have taken longer but when he came out of the temple the people outside started asking him questions.
It might be a theological point to debate that this shows God loves women more than men. If he loved men more than it would have been Elizabeth who could not talk and we would have a Holiday in the Christmas season requiring all women to be silent. Perhaps that is what Paul was getting at when he said,
(1Co 14:34 KJV) Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.Just trying to put a little Merry in your Christmas.
