Wikipedia, July 1, 2014: Luke the Evangelist (Luke the Evangelist (Ancient Greek: Λουκας = Loukas) is one of the Four Evangelists or authors of canonical Gospels of Jesus Christ. Luke was a native of the Hellenistic city of Antioch in Syria. The early church fathers ascribed to him authorship of both the Gospel according to Luke and the book of Acts of the Apostles, which originally formed a single literary work, referred to as Luke-Acts. Such authorship was later reaffirmed by prominent figures in early Christianity such as Jerome and Eusebius, although within scholarly circles, both secular and religious, discussions have been held due to the lack of evidence as to the identity of the author of the works. He is venerated as Saint Luke the Evangelist within the Roman Catholic Church, and major denominations; Born Antioch, Syria, Roman Empire; Died c. 84 near Boeotia, Greece; Luke was a Greek physician who lived in the Greek city of Antioch in Ancient Syria)
