Sunday School Outline – December 5th 2021– January 17th 2022

The account of Christ’s life as recorded by Luke is especially elegant and sensitive. Unlike Matthew, Mark, and John, who were Jews, Luke was a Greek, and his writing bears the marks of Greek literary beauty and precision. As a companion of Paul, as well as being a Greek, Luke understood the necessity of spirituality and the benefit of learning. He was known as “the beloved physician” (Col. 4:14), which suggests he was a person of considerable skills and learning. Formerly a minister of medical care, he became a minister and chronicler of the life of Jesus, the Great Physician.

The Gospel according to Luke is the first part of a two-part record of Christianity, the second part being the Acts of the Apostles. Luke inscribed both of his works to a person named Theophilus, probably a man of high rank who desired thorough knowledge of the life of Christ and the work of His followers. In ancient times, most literary works were sponsored by persons of wealth or authority. Frequently the published work was inscribed to the sponsor, as Luke addressed his works to Theophilus.
