Luke was a physician (Col. 4:14) and a traveling companion of the Apostle Paul. He is credited with writing the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. In Luke 1:1-4, Luke states he undertook to draw up an account of the things handed down from the first by eyewitnesses. He further states that he “carefully investigated everything from the beginning” and that he wrote an “orderly account” of those things. Luke’s careful attention to accuracy has been commented on by several historians, including William Ramsay, an archeologist and a professor at Oxford and Cambridge.
