  2. Jun 25, 2019 · When Did Luke the Evangelist Live? Assuming that all of the major references to Luke are about the same person and that this person wrote the gospel according to Luke, he would have lived slightly later than the time of Jesus, probably dying some time after 100 CE.

Most scholars understand Luke's works (Luke-Acts) in the tradition of Greek historiography. The preface of The Gospel of Luke (1:1-4) drawing on historical investigation is believed to have identified the work to the readers as belonging to the genre of history. There is some disagreement about how best to treat Luke's writings, with some h...

    Luke the Evangelist painting the first icon of the Virgin Mary. Another Christian tradition states that he was the first iconographer, and painted pictures of the Virgin Mary (for example, The Black Madonna of Częstochowa or Our Lady of Vladimir) and of Peter and Paul.

  3. Luke was an Evangelist, the writer of the third Gospel. He never met Christ in person, but in his Gospel he says that he came to know about Jesus by talking to eyewitnesses to the events of Jesus’ life, death, and Resurrection. Hearing those stories helped Luke to become a believer, and he wrote his Gospel so that others would come to know ...

    While Luke indicates in the opening verses of his gospel that he did not know Christ personally (he refers to the events recorded in his gospel as having been delivered to him by those "who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word"), a tradition claims that Luke was one of the 72 (or 70) disciples sent by Christ in Luke 10:1-20 "into every city and place whither he himself was to come." The tradition may derive from the fact that Luke is the only gospel writer to mention the 72. What is clear, however, is that Luke spent many years as a companion of Saint Paul. In addition to Saint Paul's testimony that Luke accompanied him on certain of his journeys, we have Luke's own testimony in the Acts of the Apostles (assuming that the traditional identification of Luke as the author of Acts is correct), beginning with his use of the word we in Acts 16:10. When Saint Paul was imprisoned for two years at Caesarea Philippi, Luke either remained there or visited him frequen...

    Luke's gospel shares many details with Saint Mark's, but whether they share a common source, or whether Mark himself (whom Saint Paul mentions each time he mentions Luke) was Luke's source, is a subject of debate. Luke's gospel is the longest (by word count and by verse), and it contains six miracles, including the healing of the ten lepers (Luke 17:12-19) and of the high priest's servant's ear (Luke 22:50-51), and 18 parables, including the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37), the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32), and the Publican and Pharisee (Luke 18:10-14), that are found in none of the other gospels. The narrative of the infancy of Christ, found in Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 of Luke's gospel, is the primary source of both our images of Christmas and the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. Luke also provides the most coherent and comprehensive account of Christ's journey toward Jerusalem (beginning in Luke 9:51 and ending in Luke 19:27), culminating in the events of Holy Week (Luke 19:28 throug...
