Why Did Luke Write the Gospel of Luke?
Luke 1:1-4: “Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set in order a narrative of those things which have been fulfilled among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus, that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed.”
Theophilus needed to know the certainty of the Christian faith (he must have been converted to the faith). Luke brings together great information from eyewitness-sources and other sources under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit because he had been given a “perfect understanding” of what had been laid out before him.
