Luke

Author – Luke
Time – 4 B.C. to 30 A.D.

Summary – The book of Luke gives us the most complete look at the life of Jesus. Luke uses eyewitnesses as sources for his writings. He stresses Jesus’ humanity (since Luke was a doctor himself) and compassion as well as the power of the Holy Spirit and of prayer.

Key Verses – "Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, "Certainly this was a righteous man!" Luke 23 v 47 "for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost" Luke 19 v 10

Unique Features – It was written particularly for Greeks, who delighted in wisdom, beauty and system. Luke, therefore, tells the story of Jesus, unfolding his development in a systematic manner, setting the facts in chronological order in a manner not attempted by the other writers. Luke was an artist with the pen, drawing the portrait of Jesus as the perfect man. He followed up by writing the book of Acts (the Acts of the Apostles.
