Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things 1accomplished among us,
just as they were handed down to us by those who 2from the beginning were 3eyewitnesses and 4servants of 5the word,
it seemed fitting for me as well, 6having investigated everything carefully from the beginning, to write it out for you 7in consecutive order, 8most excellent 9Theophilus;
so that you may know the exact truth about the things you have been 10taught.
