In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He [Jesus Christ -Yeshua] was in the beginning with God.


The book of Luke is the third of the five books of gospels and acts. Luke was a physician with a Greek name. He was the only Gentile to contribute to the New Testament. Of the four gospels, Luke provides the most comprehensive accounting of the life of Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

Luke begins by stating his purpose to write an orderly account of those things witnessed and ministered by others. He starts with the miraculous events leading up to the birth of Jesus and steps forward through the prophecies concerning John the Baptist and Jesus after their births. Luke then progresses through the childhood experiences of Jesus as He grows in wisdom and grace. Finally, Luke presents his readers with the genealogy of Jesus before he introduces Him at the beginning of His ministry.
