Luke 1:1-4 | Most Excellent Theophilus
This week begins our new series in the gospel of Luke. C.J. helped us understand the author, audience, and purpose for the book and called us to become like Theophilus, a beloved friend of God, who is seeking to know who Jesus is and what He has done.
Dedication to Theophilus
 Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us,  just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us,  it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,  that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught. (ESV)
