St. Lute is said to have been a native of Antioch in Syria, but it is uncertain whether he was a Gentile or a Jew by birth. The period of his conversion to Christianity is unknown. It is generally allowed that he was a physician by profession. From his own history, the Acts of the Apostles, we learn that he was the companion and fellow-labourer of St. Paul. During his travels with that Apostle, from Greece through Macedonia and Asia to Jerusalem, he collected many particulars of his evangelical history ; it was after he had returned to Greece, that he finished and published his Gospel, with the book of Acts.

Some have supposed him to be the same whom St. Paul mentions in Col. iv, 14, avd calls Luke the beloved physician ; but this is doubt. fal. Dr. Lardner thinks he is the Lucius mentioned in Rom. xvi. 21, (and if so, related to Si. Paul,) and the Lacios of Cyrene ; seo Acts xiii. 1. The exact circumstances of his death are uncertain ; but it is believed that he died in peace about the 80th or 84th year of his age, Some writers have intimated that he died as a martyr.

" St. Luke is supposed to have been a man of learning, previously to kis being endued with spiritual gifts. His style is more pare and classical than that of the other evangelists ; though not free from the Hebrew or Syriac idiom, which some make an objection to his being a Gentile convert : yet it only proves, that he had studied the Septuagint, and was conversant with Hellenists. The simplicity of the manner, however, in which he sets before the mind, as in a picture, the wonderful events which he records, and the talent which he manifests of fixing the attention and exciting the affections of his readers, by the most artless narrative, are so exquisite, that many have thought him, as a writer, capable of standing the competition with the most celebrated historians of Greece itself.” See Scott.

This Gospel furnishes many discourses, parables, and miracles, which had been omitted by the preceding evangelists; while many recorded by them are not noticed.
