The world of the first century was alive with myths and fables, saturated with hucksters promoting mystery religions and magical powers. So Luke, a physician who accompanied Paul on several of his missionary ventures, set out to deliberately and accurately record the beginnings of Christianity. He wrote not as an evangelist, but as a historian. And he wrote not for the unsaved, but for believers.
His clear intent was to demonstrate, in his Gospel and in Acts, the second volume of his work, that Christian faith is rooted in no myth. Christianity has its roots in history—real space and time—in the birth Jesus who was both God and Man, whose Gospel was spread by eyewitnesses.
Luke wants us to understand the story of Jesus, from its roots in Old Testament prophecy, through its authentication in miracle, to its spread by eyewitnesses of His resurrection.
