Gospel of Matthew | Gospel of Mark | Gospel of Luke | Gospel of John


The Gospel of Luke (literally, "according to Luke") is a synoptic Gospel and the third book in the New Testament canon.

Although the document is internally anonymous, the authorship of this Gospel has been traditionally ascribed to the Apostle Luke, a physician who accompanied the Apostle Paul on some of his missionary travels.

The Gospel is also the longest of the four canonical Gospels. The text narrates the life of Jesus, with particular interest concerning his birth, ministry, death, and resurrection. It ends with an account of the ascension. More emphasis is placed on women than in the other Gospels.
