Gospel of Luke
|SERMONS, ESSAYS AND OPINIONS|
The gospel according Luke is the third book of the New Testament. It tells the story of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. The story told in Luke is continued by the same author in the sequel the Acts of the Apostles.
The author's name is not recorded anywhere in the gospel. Early Christian writings such as the Muratorian Canon and the works of Orenaeus name Luke as the author. Further evidence can be taken from the Book of Acts, which is the continuation or companion book of the gospel of Luke, written by the same author. In Acts, the writer uses the pronoun "we" suggesting that the author was a companion of Paul.
