The gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles make up a two-volume work which scholars call Luke–Acts.

The Infancy Gospel of Thomas. By Mary Jane Chaignot. Introduction Matthew and Luke are the only two canonical gospels that include information about Jesus' birth. Matthew's story ends while Jesus is still a baby. Luke includes one incident occurring when Jesus was twelve, but the gap between babyhood and twelve is glaring.

Summary. The Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts are closely related. Written by the same author and for the same purpose, both were addressed to a Christian named Theophilus and were designed for the purpose of presenting to him a complete and well authenticated narrative of the early history of the Christian movement.

He thinks Matthew and Luke were writing in a historical genre. He maintains that the infancy narratives stem from sources within Jesus' family, with Mary in particular as one of Luke's sources. The author of Luke also wrote the Acts of the Apostles.

The Gospel tells about Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection, and Acts traces the spread of Christianity through the Roman Empire. The Preface to Luke’s Gospel.

Luke’s Gospel begins with a formal historiographic preface. Like St. Matthew, Luke derives much of his Gospel from that of St. Mark, generally following Mark’s sequence and incorporating about 50 percent of Mark’s material into his Gospels of Luke and Matthew, however, share a good deal of material not found in The Gospel According to Mark, suggesting that the two evangelists may have had access to another common source.

Luke THE ROMAN CENTURION'S SERVANT (also Matthew ) Luke - When Jesus had finished these talks (the Sermon on the "Plain" in Luke's Gospel) to the people, he came to Capernaum, where it happened that there was a man very seriously ill and in fact at the point of death. He was the slave of a centurion who thought very highly.

Luke on the other hand has no genealogy and instead focuses heavily on John the Baptist as a foil to Jesus. The author goes to considerable length to explain the background and circumstances around John's birth before coming to Jesus. Mary is much more central to the story than in Matthew with her visit to Elizabeth and her Magnificat in   The author, a Roman Catholic priest, introduces and explains the infancy narratives contained in the gospels of Matthew and Luke, observing especially the foreshadowing of these events in the Old Testament and the foreshadowing within the infancy narratives themselves of the coming death, burial, and resurrection of s: 4.

Gospel According to Matthew, first of the four New Testament Gospels (narratives recounting the life and death of Jesus Christ) and, with The Gospels According to Mark and Luke, one of the three so-called Synoptic Gospels (i.e., those presenting a common view).

• The author is educated—Luke-Acts has the more elegant Greek of the NT, and the author shows the ability to fluidly change styles, from the classical Greek prologue to the “Septuagintal” Greek of the infancy narratives to the Hellenistic Greek of the rest of Luke.

• The author, while not Jewish, was quite possibly a “God fearer. The third Gospel book: the Gospel of Luke covers 24 chapters and views Christ as the Son of man.

This book was addressed to the Greeks and depicts Jesus as a perfect man. Luke gave great importance to the Christ-man suffering as a true man, for as God, he could not have suffered such humiliation and death nor be a substitute for sinful man. The relationship of Jesus to the Father has already been announced in the infancy narrative (Lk35; ); it occurs here at the beginning of Jesus’ Galilean ministry and will reappear in Lk before another major section of Luke’s gospel, the travel narrative (Lk –).
