Bible Book OverviewsSteve Gregg

In this overview of the Gospel of Luke, Steve Gregg discusses the authorship and authenticity of the Gospel, as well as the unique stories and themes it contains. While the authorship of the Gospel has been debated, evidence from early church fathers suggests that Luke, the physician and companion of Paul, wrote it. Luke's Gospel provides detail on Jesus' life and teachings, including unique stories such as the birth narratives of John the Baptist and Jesus, the story of the widow in Nain, and Jesus preaching in Nazareth. The Gospel also emphasizes the role of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers and includes the Great Commission of preaching repentance and remission of sins to all nations.
