  2. This, to me, has a bit of Shakespeare’s feel to it. A respectful letter to a sponsor in hopes of getting a good read. Not that Theophilus is Luke’s sponsor, but it shows a good witness; humility and gentleness that we’re told to put on to open doors and hearts, showing/transmitting God’s love to the world.

  3. Luke seems to have taken on the role of historian/biographer, and he left no stone unturned as he compiled his account. He may have been an “outsider”, maybe even a non-Jew, but he was clearly moved by the life and ministry of Christ and wanted to share that with a wider audience.
