Luke was a "beloved physician" (Col 4:14) who was a fellow-labourer with the apostle Paul (Philemon 24), and close to Paul up to the end of Paul's life (II Timothy 4:11). We see Jesus in this gospel as the long-awaited Messiah of the Jews and the Saviour of all mankind. The standard of Greek in the original is such that it has been called "the most beautiful book ever written".
