Luke 1:1-4 CJB

1 Dear Theophilos: Concerning the matters that have taken place among us, many people have undertaken to draw up accounts
2 based on what was handed down to us by those who from the start were eyewitnesses and proclaimers of the message.
3 Therefore, Your Excellency, since I have carefully investigated all these things from the beginning, it seemed good to me that I too should write you an accurate and ordered narrative,
4 so that you might know how well-founded are the things about which you have been taught.
