Zacharias, after his speech is restored after John’s birth, begins a Holy Spirit inspired prophecy of the upcoming work of the babe still in Mary’s womb. That babe, Jesus Christ, would be a Savior. He would redeem his people and save them from the hand of their enemies and would fully perform the covenant of God, to save his people from their sins. That was the work of Jesus even from his birth. He finished the work and fully saved his people upon the cross.
