Luke never met Jesus. Luke's was a belief built on the power of faith.
In Luke's Story, we follow him as he rises from Greek slave to university-educated physician. Luke is intrigued but skeptical when he hears tales of a man named Jesus who reportedly performs great miracles of healing. But the dramatic story of the conversion and redemption of Saul, now called Paul, and the miraculous healing of one of his own patients by prayer, irreversibly changes Luke's spiritual life. He pledges himself to Christ and makes the choice to write a Gospel based on years of questioning believers about their conversions and listening to stories of the Lord's life from those who knew Him: the disciples who spent three years with Jesus, and most important, His mother, Mary.
