Did John the Baptist grow up in the wilderness?

>John the Baptist was six months older than Jesus when Herod made the decision to kill every male baby under the age of two for fear that a child from this age group would grow up and become King of the Jews and therefore displace him as King. Zacharias and Elizabeth the parents of John lived in the vicinity of Jerusalem which meant John was at risk of being murdered himself. Elizabeth stole John away and escaped to a mountainous area of Israel where he grew up in the wilderness and was raised on locusts and wild honey as his staple diet. John's father, Zacharias, was murdered by order of Herod near the alter in the Temple because he refused to disclose the whereabouts of his son(Matthew 23:35).> The Zacarias son of Berechias was NOT the father of John The Baptist, it was Zechariah in the Old Testament.

What age was Elizabeth mother of John the Baptist when John was born?

Someone has said that she was in her late 30's early 40's when John the Baptist was born but even though there is no age given, we know that is not even close to being a possible age.Everyone considered it a miracle and her husband told the angel he was an old man and his wife "well striken" in years. He wouldn't have doubted the angel if she had been in in her forties as lots of women have children in their 40's and even fifties. She had to be at least in her late 60's or older because the angel told Mary that her cousin Elizabeth was having a baby in her old age and even 60 is not considered old age. Linda Marek
