1 Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us,
2 just as those, who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word, handed them down to us,
3 it seemed fitting for me as well, having investigated everything carefully from the beginning, to write it out for you in orderly sequence, most excellent Theophilus,
4 so that you may know the certainty about the things you have been taught.
Referenced Scripture: Colossians 4:14, 2 Timothy 4:6—11a
“The process of inspiration never bypassed or overrode the personalities, life experiences, vocabularies, or writing styles of the human authors; their unique traits are indelibly stamped on all the books of Scripture. The Spirit used Luke’s knowledge, gave him additional information, guided his selection of material, and controlled every word so that he wrote exactly what God wanted written.” Dr. John MacArthur.
