We are currently going through a sermon series through the book of Luke. The Book of Luke was the last of the synoptic gospels to be written and is the only gospel written by a gentile. It's main themes are a special attention to the compassion of Jesus to those who were considered marginalized by Jewish society. Luke 1:1-4 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us, 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. 3 With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
