Bible has many authors and one divine editor .  Authors did not have an idea that one day those will be part of Bible . Why did Luke write two books Luke and acts , in other words his book in two volumes  .
Luke was the only the Gentile writer in  the Bible . His original name was Lukas  and was a native of Syria , which was the ‘Paris of ancient world’  . It was in Antioch of Ancient Syria where the  first ‘Gentile Church’ was established . The followers of Christ was called Christians by the locals . Luke was well  placed in Gentile world to show, how Jerusalem spread to Rome .
Doctor .
 Luke was a Doctor by profession . His careful and analytical knowledge is in his Gospel and Acts of Apostles . Birth of Jesus and Circumcision are from a Doctors view . Luke gives Mary’s genealogy  to trace Jesus’s physical ancestry , while Matthew gives Joseph’s line . In Mark’s gospel , sickness of Peter’s mother is simply fever ; Luke writes it was a high fever . The virgin birth , wonders , and signs in Acts come from Luke’s pen  .
Traveler .
Luke was an experienced traveler . It is Luke who refers ‘sea of Galilee’ as a Lake  . Lake  is 13 km long and  8 km wide . In Acts he mentions travelling with Paul extensively . In fact Paul wanted Luke’s company for travel from Philippi to Jerusalem and from Caesarea to Rome . Although Paul was not a Disciple , he spread Christianity than all others ! .
Writer .
Luke was an educated and a polished Greek writer but not a good  speaker.  His explanation of Shipwreck in Malta is one of the masterpieces of Literature . Paul was in the ship wreck. Malta is south of Sicily in Arabian Sea . Luke was also an Evangelist . He used writing more than talking . Salvation was the key word in his writings . In his Gospel he records a quotation from Isaiah ” All flesh shall see the Salvation of God ” . History records,  he died at age 84 in Greece  , having never married .
Luke wrote both the books to a friend named Theophilus  meaning “God friendly” . Some say he was a fictional figure and some say he was a publisher in Christianity . However Luke used him as a man of importance . Probably same person presided over the trial of Paul . It is possible, Theophilus was the defense Lawyer for Paul  during trial against Christianity in Rome . The purpose of Luke’s writing both volumes was only to defend Paul, who was in prison .
Paul was in Roman prison awaiting trial against Roman’s . So Luke researched Jesus and Paul  thoroughly for Paul’s defense and  his contribution to the new religion . Luke’s work include  interviewing James , Matthew , and John . Luke was not one of the 12 of Jesus’ . He was not  even was part of Jesus  ministry  . But he overcame all that by visiting all eyewitness’s and  collected all eye witness account of Jesus .  Luke was  with Paul in Caesarea for two years before he was shipped to Rome for his Trial  . Paul was innocent of all crimes .  The troubles for Paul and Christianity was not caused by Roman’s but by  Jews .
Paul’s lawyer .
Imagine Theophilus was the defense lawyer  for Paul in Rome . Luke has researched Jesus and Paul and their contribution to  the new religion . He collected all material for trial from Matthew , James and John . If the defense is correct , we can see why Romans were sympathetic to Christianity . A lawyer need first hand testimony of eyewitness . Both Luke’s volumes  , Gospel and Acts  contain events by Romans in Luke 2:1 and 3:1 . Luke investigated everything by himself and wrote an orderly account but he never thought it will be part of Bible .
Focus on Paul .
Acts is known as Acts of Apostles . But only two Apostles are main focus , Peter and Paul . The whole work of Luke is to defend Paul . Nothing deserves a bad reputation for the new Religion . Paul was a Roman citizen and Romans did not find any guilt in Jesus or Paul and were innocent by Roman law . Dr. Luke’s writing about ship  wreck of Malta was showing Romans ,  his concern for Roman people .  In Paul’s concluding trial , the defense  lawyer said ” I rest my case your honor ” and sat down .
Conclusion .
Paul’s letters to Timothy and Titus shows that he was acquitted of first trial  in Rome . In fact this was a trial  of  Christianity . This verdict could Stop the  new Religion or Spread  it .  Luke   superbly wrote both books but he never thought he will have a world audience later . Although Luke was not an Apostle, it was a declaration of his faith.   Church declared both his books should be in New Testament Cannon .

However Luke used him as a man of importance . Probably same person presided over the trial of Paul . It is possible, Theophilus was the defense Lawyer for Paul  during trial against Christianity in Rome . The purpose of Luke’s writing both volumes was only to defend Paul, who was in prison .
Paul was in Roman prison awaiting trial against Roman’s . So Luke researched Jesus and Paul  thoroughly for Paul’s defense and  his contribution to the new religion . Luke’s work include  interviewing James , Matthew , and John . Luke was not one of the 12 of Jesus’ . He was not  even was part of Jesus  ministry  . But he overcame all that by visiting all eyewitness’s and  collected all eye witness account of Jesus .  Luke was  with Paul in Caesarea for two years before he was shipped to Rome for his Trial  . Paul was innocent of all crimes .  The troubles for Paul and Christianity was not caused by Roman’s but by  Jews .
Paul’s lawyer .
Imagine Theophilus was the defense lawyer  for Paul in Rome . Luke has researched Jesus and Paul and their contribution to  the new religion . He collected all material for trial from Matthew , James and John . If the defense is correct , we can see why Romans were sympathetic to Christianity . A lawyer need first hand testimony of eyewitness . Both Luke’s volumes  , Gospel and Acts  contain events by Romans in Luke 2:1 and 3:1 . Luke investigated everything by himself and wrote an orderly account but he never thought it will be part of Bible .
Focus on Paul .
Acts is known as Acts of Apostles . But only two Apostles are main focus , Peter and Paul . The whole work of Luke is to defend Paul . Nothing deserves a bad reputation for the new Religion . Paul was a Roman citizen and Romans did not find any guilt in Jesus or Paul and were innocent by Roman law . Dr. Luke’s writing about ship  wreck of Malta was showing Romans ,  his concern for Roman people .  In Paul’s concluding trial , the defense  lawyer said ” I rest my case your honor ” and sat down .
Conclusion .
Paul’s letters to Timothy and Titus shows that he was acquitted of first trial  in Rome . In fact this was a trial  of  Christianity . This verdict could Stop the  new Religion or Spread  it .  Luke   superbly wrote both books but he never thought he will have a world audience later . Although Luke was not an Apostle, it was a declaration of his faith.   Church declared both his books should be in New Testament Cannon .

If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet.
