Jesus is the Great Physician.
According to the apostle Paul, Luke was a “beloved physician” who traveled with him on several of his missionary journeys. However, Luke’s real passion was in setting down an orderly account that detailed the birth, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This was a task for which Luke was well suited, for he was both a thoughtful man of science and a great observer of people. Luke thus took great care in relating the information he collected, but he also emphasized the care that Jesus, as the Great Physician, extended to people everywhere–both Jewish and Gentile alike. Luke shows the high value Jesus places on rescuing all people from their sins–no matter how “far gone” those people might seem. And he shows how Jesus was willing to give up His place in heaven to come down to earth as a sacrifice for the sins of every person who will receive Him.
