Has also conceived
In her old age.
This is the sixth month
Who was said
To be barren.
Nothing is impossible
καὶ ἰδοὺ Ἐλεισάβετ ἡ συγγενίς σου καὶ αὐτὴ συνείληφεν υἱὸν ἐν γήρει αὐτῆς, καὶ οὗτος μὴν ἕκτος ἐστὶν αὐτῇ τῇ καλουμένῃ στείρᾳ·
ὅτι οὐκ ἀδυνατήσει παρὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ πᾶν ῥῆμα
Next Luke made the connection between the upcoming birth of Jesus and that of John. Elizabeth, although older, was a relative of Mary. She could have been an aunt of a second cousin. Their age differences would not make them first cousins. Besides, they lived in different areas, Galilee and Judea. Elizabeth was a daughter of Aaron, but there was no such claim for Mary. Was this an attempt to link Mary to the Levitical priesthood via her Levitical relative? Perhaps Luke wanted to show a closer relationship between John and Jesus. Luke indicated that the Angel Gabriel told Mary about his previous mission to Zechariah and Elizabeth. He told Mary that her relative Elizabeth (καὶ ἰδοὺ Ἐλεισάβετ ἡ συγγενίς σου) had also conceived a son (καὶ αὐτὴ συνείληφεν υἱὸν), in her old age (ἐν γήρει αὐτῆς). She was, in fact, already six months pregnant (καὶ οὗτος μὴν ἕκτος ἐστὶν αὐτῇ). Elizabeth had been called barren or sterile (τῇ καλουμένῃ στείρᾳ). The Angel Gabriel concluded that nothing was impossible with God (ὅτι οὐκ ἀδυνατήσει παρὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ πᾶν ῥῆμα). He could overcome old age and virginity to produce a son, just like Sarah in Genesis, chapter 18:14. Now the plan of God was clear to Mary. She had no reason to fear anything.
