English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, 1 Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us,
2 just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us, 2 just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eyewitnesses and servants of the word.
3 it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, 3 Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,
4 that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught. 4 so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
