The book of Luke brings us a chronological rendering of Jesus’ life and ministry. Written by a doctor who was likely not a Jew, it focuses on the facts and is the first of two sequential books addressed to Theophilus. Acts is the second book… as a foundation for understanding the early church and its origins.
While Luke focused much of his attention on facts, he clearly valued placing those facts within the context of relationships… Jesus’ interactions with people. So while it is clinical in its observation, it’s personal in its depiction of Jesus and his compassion for people.
