biographical information of the writer
Biographical Information of the Writer
  • Tradition identifies Luke as a Gentile Christian as the author of the 3rd Gospel.
  • A strong proof that Luke authored the Gospel of Luke and the Acts o f the Apostles is that both are addressed to the same person, Theophilus.
  • Paul was a companion on Luke’s journey and it was most likely that Luke used a travel diary to help construct some of the history of the Acts.
  • Luke was from Antioch in Syria and died in Greece.

  • Proof that Luke wrote to gentiles is his elimination of passages that might confuse a non-Jewish audience.
  • The author of Luke used 3 main sources:
      • Mark’s Gospel (60% of Mark’s appears in Luke’s)
      • Q (common source used by both Luke and Matthew)
      • L (sources unique to Luke)
  • The creation of the Gospel was 75 – 90 C.E.
  • Luke dedicates his gospel to a certain Theophilus (“lover of God”).
  • Three periods of Salvation History:
      • Relationship between Jesus and the history of Israel.
      • Jesus’ life, Death, and Resurrection.
      • The rapid spread of the apostolic church through the Gentile World.

  • They believe that Luke may have been in a secluded town close to Rome but far enough to focus on writing

What is the Image of Jesus in the Gospel?
  • Luke presents Jesus as a compassionate Savior driven by the Holy Spirit. Jesus has come to save us, His children, so that we can have everlasting life with God our Father
  • Luke also portrays Jesus as the Messiah who brings His father’s message of forgiveness, love, and humanity through Jesus’ actions
    • Healing the sick
    • Touching and hanging out with the lepers who were often sent away
    • Treating women with respect and as equals

what is the image of jesus in the gospel cont
What is the Image of Jesus in the Gospel? (cont.)
  • As the center of history, Jesus, is guided and directed by the Holy Spirit to proclaim His message of salvation
  • Jesus is the Friend to the Friendless. It is Jesus who associates himself with the poor, lowly, and other outcasts. A humble Jesus teaches us that our actions and love should be displayed by our actions and not our words
  • Jesus is a Friend of Sinners. Just like Jesus’ love, God’s love is endless and everlasting no matter how often we mess up
  • Luke shows us a Jesus who is a “faithful witness” and describes Him as an excellent model for all Christians who believe in God and want to share His message to all
