Luke, to whom this Gospel has been uniformly attributed from theearliest ages of the Christian church, is generally allowed tohave been "the beloved physician" mentioned by Paul, (Col 4:14;)and as he was the companion of that apostle, in all his laboursand sufferings, for many years, (Ac 16:12; 20:1-6; 27:1,2;28:13-16
2 Timothy 4:11 . Phm 24,) and wrote "the Acts of the
Apostles," which conclude with a brief account of Paul'simprisonment at Rome, we may be assured that he had theApostle's sanction to what he did; and probably this Gospel waswritten some time before that event, about A
D. 63 or 64, as is
generally supposed. He would appear, from Col 4:10, 11, and hisintimate acquaintance with the Greek language, as well as fromhis Greek name [Loukas ,] to have beenof Gentile extraction; and according to Eusebius and others, hewas a native of Antioch. But, from the Hebraisms occurring inhis writings, and especially from his accurate knowledge of theJewish rites, ceremonies, and custom, it is highly probable thathe was a Jewish proselyte, and afterwards converted toChristianity. Though he may not have been, as some haveaffirmed, one of the seventy disciples, and an eye-witness ofour Saviour's miracles, yet his intercourse with the apostles,and those who were eye-witnesses of the works and ear witnessesof the words of Christ, renders him an unexceptional witness, ifconsidered merely as an historian; and the early and unanimousreception of his Gospel as divinely inspired is sufficient tosatisfy every reasonable person.
