In surveys taken before and after the first Good Book Club project in (reading the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts), participants reported growth in their understanding of scripture and a deepening of their prayer life.

    Nov 05,  · LUKE. We have reunited the two volumes of Luke–Acts and placed them first because they provide an overview of the New Testament period. Luke wrote this two-volume history to serve several important purposes: He wanted to assure followers of Jesus that what they’d been taught about him was trustworthy. May 15,  · Luke and the Book of Acts. After the four Gospels, the next chronological account in the Bible is known as “The Book of Acts” or “The Acts of the Apostles.” According to most scholars, Luke wrote Acts as a continuation of his Gospel account. In fact, many have called the Book of Acts “Part 2” of the Gospel of Luke.

    The final editors of the New Testament separated the Gospel According to Luke and Acts of the Apostles, which were originally written by the same author in a single two-volume work. The Gospel of Luke is the unit’s first half and narrates the birth, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Acts mentions Luke as a traveling companion with Paul. And in areas where it appears the Luke joined Paul, Acts point-of-view changes from “he” to “we”, and then at points where it seems that Luke may have left Paul or stayed behind, point-of-view then reverts back from “we” to “he”.

Luke was a Syrian born in Antioch and one of the earliest converts to Christianity. Luke, well-educated in classical Greek and noted for his literary talent, wrote his Gospel and a sequel, the Acts of the Apostles, which follows the Gospel of John.
