They were not interested in Jewish geneology.They wanted to read about a powerful leader and Savior as in Mark 16:20. They liked straightforward, quick moving stories4. Why is Mark important to me: : Why is Mark important to me: Luke, The Beloved Greek Physician : Native of Syria A Greek – only non-Jew writer of the New Testament A Physician by trade and well-educated Eusibius says Luke was a native of Antioch in Syria3 Luke, The Beloved Greek Physician How Luke knew Paul and Mark : How Luke knew Paul and Mark He was typically identified as a companion of Mark He is recognized for writing the book Luke while caring for Paul ,who was in prison in Caesarea, and wrote Acts while caring for Paul who was in prison in Rome. Acts locates him with Paul from Troas to Philippi in Paul’s second missionary trip. 6 years later he rejoins Paul at Phillippi at the close of Paul’s third missionary journey. Scriptures: Acts 16:10-24, 2 Timothy 4:11, and Col 4:4, Phil 24 Luke’s life After Resurrection : Luke’s life After Resurrection What Luke did after Jesus’ Resurrection Eusibius notes that Luke was the leader of the Philippian church for the first 6 years. 3 Death Some say he died of natural causes.6 Some say he died as a martyr.6 Why is Luke is important to me: : Why is Luke is important to me: Luke was a Greek and a Gentile. His background gave him the ability to reach the people outside the Jewish culture. He was able to use his talents and devotion to the early Apostle to write a chronological account of Jesus’ life. God gives us talents and strength, just what we need, to do the job he has called us to do. What is your job? The Book of Luke : The Book of Luke Date: AD 60-62 Written in Caesarea Audience: Greek and Gentiles Book of Luke - My Dear Theophilus : Book of Luke - My Dear Theophilus Authentication Halley says, “Greek civilization represents Culture, Philosophy, Wisdom, Reason, Beauty, Education.

Depicts the Glorious Beauty and Perfection of Jesus, the Ideal Universal Man.”3 Book of Luke : Book of Luke Interesting Contents Only the book of Luke includes: Genealogy Birth of Jesus The Golden Rule – Luke 6:27-28 Details of the last week of Jesus’ life – Luke 19:29-Luke 24 Key Verse: Luke 9:23,24 Acts – the Sequel : Acts – the Sequel Author: Luke the Physician Date: AD 60-62 Written in Rome Interesting Contents Introduction of the Holy Spirit to the church – Acts 2 Establishment of the church leadership and ministry Establishment of the administrative structure of the church – Acts 6 Scattering of the church after the martyr of Stephen Paul and his three missionary journeys and subsequent imprisonment Authentication Luke 1:1- In my former book . . .
