Luke

We don't know much about Luke.  He was a gentile, a doctor and a servant.  The only details of himself or his personal life are vague and only spoken of as they pertain to ministry.  He was a companion of the Apostle Paul so we can know the kind of life he lived and the amazing things he saw.  The book of Luke is book one of a two volume work.  Since book two, Acts, ends while Paul is still imprisoned, it is believed Luke wrote this in Rome while Paul was imprisoned.  That sets the date to 60-61A.D.

 

Luke knew of the 'many' who had written of Christ.  He was probably aware of Mark and Matthew's gospel.  Luke apparently felt he had something different to add, something to say others had not said.  He wrote to Theophilus, meaning 'friend of God'.  This may have been a specific person but was more likely a reference to the church.  Luke wrote to us so we may know the certainty of those things.  In writing an 'orderly' account he wasn't hinting the others were disorderly, only that his account was in order, or on a timeline.
