Luke was a doctor, a physician, and was a friend and traveling companion of the apostle Paul. He was the author of both the gospel that bears his name, and the book of Acts, a history of the early church. And in both Luke and Acts, he shows himself a careful and accurate historian.
We don’t know if he was Jewish or a Gentile—scholars argue for both. He certainly cared about Gentiles—they play a prominent role in his gospel, along with women and the poor and marginalized.
