Did You Know?
Luke was probably a Greek. He was the only non-Jewish New Testament writer.
Luke is the only gospel with a sequel – the book of Acts. Luke wrote the longest gospel account. Luke’s writings account for more than 25% of the New Testament.
Luke has 18 parables that are found in no other gospel. For example, the Good Samaritan, the Lost Sheep, and the Prodigal Son are only found in the book of Luke (See Luke 10:25-37, 15:4-7, 15:11-32).

Luke revealed the prayer life of Jesus.
Jesus prayed at His baptism (Luke 3:21). He often prayed in secret (Luke 5:16, 6:12, 9:18, 9:28-29). He gave thanks before eating (Luke 9:16, 22:17-19).
Significant prayers in Luke include the “Lord’s Prayer” and the prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane (Luke 11:1-4, 22:39-46).
Two parables found only in Luke highlight the importance of persistent prayer (Luke 11:5-13, 18:1-8).
