Men of the Bible Series: Luke
Luke—the author of the third Gospel and the book of Acts—he was the only Gentile scientist who penned any of the books of the Bible.
Many Bible Scholars Say Luke Did Not Know Jesus Christ Personally
It is a controversy if Luke knew Jesus personally.* When Paul Taught Him The Gospel. Luke Had Been A Physician (Colossians 4:14), But He Left That Profession To Travel With Paul (2 Timothy 4:11). He Had The Opportunity To Talk With Many Of The Apostles As Well As Others Who Were Eyewitnesses To Special Events Or Moments In The Lord’s Life. Luke died a martyrs death; he was Hanged In Greece.
He was called "the beloved physician" by Paul (Colossians 4:14), and undoubtedly one reason for his ongoing association with Paul was the latter's need for frequent medical care. And he is the only Gospel writer who refers to the circumcision of the infant Jesus on the eighth day. *http://yhwh-glory-end-time-ministry.org/death-thirteen-men/
At least twenty of Christ's parables are recorded in Luke—a number of which (e.g., the Good Samaritan, the prodigal son) are found only in Luke's gospel.

The scientist Luke wrote:
"God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of heaven and earth . . . giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth. . . . He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead"
