Sarah & Elizabeth

Two very important women who had similar experiences are Sarah & Elizabeth.  Both had their first child after it should have been possible.  It’s likely that Sarah had Isaac after menopause.  It’s possible Elizabeth did too.  Sarah gave birth to Isaac when she was ninety.  Isaac was the child God promised her 25 years earlier.  Elizabeth was barren and along in years when God promised her a son through a vision to her husband Zechariah.  John was the designated Nazarite who paved the way for Jesus’ ministry.   Is this a grand parallel between the Israelites and the church?
