Luke Writes an Orderly Report

1 Many people have attempted to write about the things that have taken place among us.
2 Reports of these things were handed down to us. There were people who saw these things for themselves from the beginning and then passed the word on.
3 I myself have carefully looked into everything from the beginning. So it seemed good also to me to write down an orderly report of exactly what happened. I am doing this for you, most excellent Theophilus.
4 I want you to know that the things you have been taught are true.
