Luke was a Gentile Physician who traveled extensively with the apostle Paul, who wrote his gospel for a man named Theophilus most likely another Gentile believer After consulting several eyewitnesses and accounts of Jesus’ life Luke wrote the fresh account of Jesus’ life and ministry. Luke also highlights Jesus’ concern for the oppressed and outcast, such as women and the poor, and there is notable emphasis on the role of the Holy Spirit. Luke was careful to give precise dates for the events recorded in his Gospel beginning with the birth of Jesus. The book leaves the disciples rejoicing and waiting for the promised power of God to fill them.
