The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
All of us have to deal with pain, suffering, and death, and learning how to cope with these things is part of our life. How we cope with these things is based on what we understand and believe about the cause of pain, suffering, and death, and what the ultimate remedy for it is. Throughout the Gospels, we see how Jesus Christ dealt with these things, and today, we see how Jesus healed a deathly ill person and brought back to life a dead person.
