About the Author
Luke was a Greek Gentile Christian that some might think of him to be a disciple of Paul.
What about his audience?
Luke’s audience was very unique because it is the only gospel written from a Gentile to Gentile Christians suffering persecution in Rome and it is also unique because dedicated "theophilus," meaning "one who loves God."
Jesus' complete self in the Gospel of Luke!
In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus is portrayed as compassionate and merciful with a special concern and interest for poor people, women, and non-Jews and is extremely forgiving.
A unique story in the gospel is Luke's infancy narrative, with an emphasis on the “elaborate parallelism between Jesus and John the Baptist. In each case Jesus is greater than the Baptist.” (RG.401).
Focus around the human side of Jesus
The only gospel that he associated with Women, and also had a reputation for being associated with the sick, outcasts, and poor, whom he spends most of his time with.
A different Jesus
In the gospel there is a special focus on prayer; the Jesus Luke shows us is a prayerful one. (See chapter 3) Every time he does something important, like a miracle, he prays.
