St. Lukes writings

Luke was the only Gentile to have written books in the bible. In his writings of the third gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, he emphasizes Christ's compassion for sinners and for those who suffer. Luke is also found to have a strong emphasis on women who played a big part in Jesus' ministry. In Luke 12:29-31 he says, "As for you, do not seek what you are to eat, and do not worry anymore. All the nations of the world seek for these things, and your father knows that you need them. Instead, seek his kingdom, and these other things will be given you besides."
