Luke, Once Believed To Be A Physician To A Roman Family, Was Then Chosen By Jesus Christ To Follow Him And Become One Of His Apostles.
Luke is believed to be the author of both the Gospel of Luke and The Acts of the Apostles; even though he was never a witness to the things he wrote about in the Gospel of Luke, he did interview reliable eyewitnesses about the events which took place in that Gospel. Having been a physician, Luke was very articulate about documenting those events.
As in other parts of the Bible, the Book of Luke is just like all the other books, fascinating! With every book of the Bible, you gain more and more information about God and yourself. Are you walking with God? Do you have Him steadfast in your heart? Can you think of anything you want more than to see Jesus’ face? All these things you will have if you give yourself to Him and walk His path. If you feel the pull to ask Jesus into your heart, then know that He chose you to follow Him, and you will receive the rewards of seeing Heaven, standing before God, and receiving the Crown of Life.

Best Bible Verses From The Gospel Of Luke
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 certain of those things in which you are instructed.Luke 1:1-4
Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”Luke 1:26-28
And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.Luke 1:35-38
And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out to the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.Luke 2:1-7
When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized: and while He prayed, the heaven was opened. And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”Luke 3:21-22
Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted for forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they had ended, He was hungry. And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bead.” But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’” Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours.” And Jesus answered and said to him, “Get behind Me, Satan!” For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord you God, and Him only you shall serve,’” Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “if You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here, For it is written: ‘He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’” And Jesus answered and said to him, “it has been said, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’” Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.Luke 4:1-13
So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To Preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and the holy angels. But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God.”Luke 4:16-27
Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.” So He said to them “When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come soon.
May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins,
As we have forgiven those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from
the evil one. Amen!”Luke 11:1-4
And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen!Luke 24:50-52
Many other verses in this New Testament Book show how wonderful living with God in your life can be. He is so gracious and will give you everything you need that you might ask for. But most of all, God and His Mighty Son Jesus surround you with a love that can’t be compared to anything on this earth. Their love for you is continual, without end or conditions; they hear every prayer and answer them if you only believe and have faith in Jesus, our precious Lord and Savior. And in God our Father and the Holy Spirit, which lives with every believer of Christ. Continue to grow in God’s love and knowledge; read your Bible every day and continually give the Lord your special prayers to our Trinity: God the Father; Jesus Christ the Son; and the Holy Spirit the teacher will always be with you, living in your heart.
