Luke, in Greek Lukas a briefer form of Lucanos, is the only one of the four Evangelists who was probably not a Jew. It has been suggested that he appears in his own narrative as one of the "seventy" sent out by Jesus, and also as one of the two disciples who supped with the Risen Christ at Emmaus; but Luke himself states that he does not write as an eyewitness of events.
All that we really know of Luke is gathered from his Gospel and his book "The Acts of the Apostles", also Philem. 24, 2 Tim. 4 and 11, Col. 4 and 14. From these we learn that he was a physician, an educated man, a writer of more classic Greek than Matthew or Mark, and tradition makes him a painter. He was an early convert and teacher, a chosen companion and close friend of St. Paul in the latter's journeyings, a comrade also to St. Peter and other of the early leaders of the Church. His gospel was apparently written about 60 or 70 A.D.
The faith of Luke seems more broadminded than that of Matthew and Mark; he knows no distinction between Jew and Gentile in the service of Christ. From this and other indications his Gospel is usually regarded as voicing the views of his great leader, Paul. His book incorporates most of the material found in the two preceding Gospels and adds to this much detail bearing on the birth of Christ, and the period of His resurrection, including the wonderful account of the Ascension. Chiefly, however, this Gospel is separated from the others by the many additional parables it contains.
