Luke was a physician in the first century, and as such he sought to bring physical healing to those who came to him in need. But at some point in his life, he heard about an even greater physician from Nazareth who not only miraculously healed people of their physical ailments but also brought healing to their souls.
Luke's Gospel reflects the skill he undoubtedly employed in his work—asking probing questions, taking detailed notes, diagnosing the problems—as he carefully relates the events of Jesus' ministry on earth. Through it all, Luke reveals how Jesus, as a compassionate physician, came to offer a cure to the terminal condition of sin that we all share . . . an illness that could only be remedied by sacrificing his own life in payment on the cross.
