Certainty: The Gospel of Jesus Christ According to Luke

Luke, as a companion of Paul, and likely acquaintance of the first followers of Jesus, compiled and compared many eyewitness reports about Jesus. Having conducted the research over an extended period of time, Luke is convinced of his calling to provide an orderly account so that all who read it can be certain of what is faithfully preached and taught about Jesus Christ. Luke writes with a passion for strengthening our faith and assuring us of the truth of the Gospel.
