Luke is a Gentile writing for a particular person, another Gentile named Theophilus. In his Gospel, Luke provides a detailed and orderly account of the life and ministry of Jesus. Although Matthew, Mark, and Luke draw from many of the same sources for their material, each Gospel writer adapts his material for his particular audience and purpose. Luke presents his material in a brilliant prose style, as he creates a specific voice for his narrator and specific, identifiable voices for his characters.
"Excellent Bible Study"

"My only complaint"
As a physician, Luke focused on the humanity of Jesus and presented Him as the son of man. In our study of this gospel, Pastor Skip Heitzig takes us through Luke's methodical account of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection so that we may "know the certainty of those things in which [we] were instructed" (Luke 1:4).
In 1863 California, a corrupt lawman reneges on a deal for Luke McCall's mustang herd when 19-year-old Delaney refuses to marry him as part of the purchase. He frames the McCalls as horse thieves for taking the herd back in lieu of payment. They are soon forced to abandon their ranch and flee to Monterey, seeking protection through their friend the sheriff, who tries to prove their innocence.
Frank Luke, Jr., was an unlikely pilot. In the Great War, when fliers were still "knights of the air", Luke was an ungallant loner, a kid from Arizona who collected tarantulas, shot buzzards, and boxed miners. But during two torrid weeks in September 1918, he was the deadliest man on the Western Front. In only 10 missions, he destroyed 14 heavily defended German balloons and four airplanes, a rampage unequalled even by the dreaded von Richtofen, and the second highest American tally of the entire war.

Dr. Perkins presents an image of the crucified Messiah that is riveting. The conflicts with religious leaders, the debates and the miracles of Jesus all lead up to the dramatic moment of the Death of the Messiah. The Gospel asks the question, “Can flawed disciples be examples of faith?” Matthew’s Gospel expands and modifies Mark by emphasizing the role of the crowds, the righteousness of Jesus, and the conflicts amongst the disciples and with other Jews.
Luke never met Jesus. Unlike the other Gospel writers, he never witnessed Jesus perform miracles or heard Him impart the Word that healed the souls of so many. No, his was a belief built on faith alone, like that of believers today. And his Gospel, filled with the stories of the Lord's divinity, speaks to the hearts of Christians everywhere.
"Not Historically accurate"
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The majesty and lyricism of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are vividly brought to life in this recording, drawn from the King James version of the Bible.

"cool hand Lukes have always been my favorite"
Luke’s Gospel from the widely acclaimed modern literary classic The New Testament in Scots, now available as an audio digital download for the first time. Tom Fleming's reading brings out the poetry, wit, and humanity of William Lorimer's translation in a way which speaks to everyone. Lorimer (1885-1967) immersed himself in the Scots language from childhood, learning the rich Angus dialect of his locality. He devoted the last decade of his life to translating the New Testament into Scots.
