Zachariah (f'irst century) The father of St. John the Baptist, also listed as Zachary. He was a priest in the temple of Jerusalern, the husband of St. Elizabeth, a cousin of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Receiving a vision from an angel, Zachariah was told that Elizabeth would bear a son named John. Zachariah was struck dumb until John was born. The birth of John the Baptist was recorded in Luke, chapter one. A minor tradition states that Zachariah was slain in the temple when he refused to tell King Herod where St. John the Baptist could be found.
