Hi, guys —

Please tell me about Luke, the Apostle, covering the most salient points and as they pertain to Catholicism.


  { Can you tell me about St. Luke, the Apostle, covering the most salient points in Catholicism? }

John replied:

Hi, Steven —

Luke was not an Apostle; he was a disciple of the Apostle, Paul. We first hear of him in the book of Acts where he joins Paul on his missionary journeys. Tradition ascribes one New Testament Gospel and the book of Acts to his authorship.

It is also believed that he was a Greek or Greek Jew and a physician. The Gospel according to Luke has more accounts of miraculous healings than any other. This same Gospel was probably intended to evangelize Greek Jews and Gentiles.

Hope this answers your question.

Under His Mercy,

John C. DiMascio
