A fetus was the first to leap at Jesus

A fetus was the first to leap at Jesus – That fetus was John the Baptist, remember he leaped in the womb at Jesus. The word leaped, literally meant to jump or move! I’m sure it wasn’t like normal movement or kicking!

“When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And how has it happened to me, that the mother of my Lord would come to me? For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭1:41-45‬ ‭NASB

e-Sword

G4640   (Strong)

σκιρτάω

skirtaō

skeer-tah’-o 

Akin to σκαίρω skairō (to skip); to jump, that is, sympathetically move (as the quickening of a fetus): – leap (for joy).

The word “fetus” is Latin for small child

The word fetus also means the young while in the womb or egg. That clearly shows the humanity of the unborn baby. It does not mean tissue or tissue matter. It shows it is a being. #Fetus

John was still in the womb when he leaped. He knew in the womb he was near Jesus! Guess what? Jesus was in the womb too!

This shows that the fetus has life and is aware of what is going on. There is life to a fetus.
