From the outset of Luke’s Gospel it is clear that he wants to get his story straight.

Luke begins in this way,
Many people have set out to write accounts about the events that have been fulfilled among us. They used the eyewitness reports circulating among us from the early disciples. Having carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I also have decided to write a careful account for you, most honorable Theophilus, so you can be certain of the truth of everything you were taught (Luke 1:1-4, NLT).
This is Luke’s main statement about his work, why he did it and how he did it.
