Who Was Luke?

Luke was a medical doctor who traveled with a missionary named Paul. Luke probably used his medical skills may times to treat sick people along the way.
Luke is most famous for writing two books- the Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles. Luke wasn't a Jew, and that comes across in his writing. He makes sure readers know that Jesus came to save everyone, not just the Jews. "People will come from all over the world to take their places in the Kingdom of God" (Luke 13:29)
Luke was also a brave man. He stayed with Paul to the end when the Romans killed Paul. When Paul wrote his last letter from jail, he said everyone else had left him. "Only Luke is with me." (2 Timothy 4:11)
Will our Luke be a very brave doctor some day? Anything is possible... (p.s.- RIGHT after I wrote that last sentence the Vikings scored and Tommy said "maybe you'll be the next Brett Favre, Luke!" Ours dreams are slightly different :))

I know it's a little wispy, but this is Luke's first faux hawk
