Dr. Luke gives us the most descriptive account of the life of Christ. He was the best historian of all the Gospel writers and provides information others don’t. He consistently draws our attention to the needs of people and how Jesus went out of His way to be responsive to them. Like a good doctor, Luke records not just the data, but he laces the details with insight and meaning. We all want comfort from the doctor whether he’s imparting good news or bad. I find great comfort in Luke’s depiction of this One we love devotedly, follow intensely, and serve wholeheartedly.
