The Dedication to Theophilus

1 Many have undertaken to compile a narrative about the events that have been fulfilleda among us,
2 just as the original eyewitnesses and servants of the word handed them down to us.
3 It also seemed good to me, since I have carefully investigated everything from the very first, to write to you in orderly sequence, most honorable Theophilus,
4 so that you may know the certainty of the things about which you have been instructed.b
