Abstract This note criticizes M. Wolter’s thesis which states that the expression 'in those days' of Lk 2,1 refers to 1,80, i.e., to the time that John the Baptist grew up in the wilderness, and that between the birth of John and that of Jesus there must have been several years. A careful reconsideration of 1,39-45 and 2,1 makes it highly likely that Luke connects 2,1 with the days of John’s birth and that Mary, according to Luke, has just become pregnant before her visit of Elisabeth.
