Summary – The Gospel of St. Luke

Author - This Gospel, written by Luke is a companion volume to the book of Acts. They are both addressed to the same individual, Theophilus.

Luke was probably a Gentile by birth, well educated in Greek culture, a physician by profession, a companion of Paul at various times from his second missionary journey to his final imprisonment in Rome (2 Timothy 4:11).

Recipient and Purpose:The Gospel is specifically directed to Theophilus (1:3), whose name means "one who loves God" Luke wanted to show that the place of the Gentile Christian in God's kingdom is based on the teaching of Jesus. He wanted to commend the preaching of the gospel to the whole world.
