This year I've decided to sketch many of The Great Holy Men and Women of the Church. Come along with me on this journey as we get to know our elder brothers and sisters in faith.
"And therefore we also having so great a cloud of witnesses over our head, laying aside every weight and sin which surrounds us, let us run by patience to the fight proposed to us," Heb 12:1
Luke the Evangelist
Luke the Evangelist (Greek: Λουκᾶς, Loukás) is one of the Four Evangelists- the four authors of the Gospels. Luke was a Greek native of the city of Antioch (in modern Turkey). According to tradition, he was a pagan doctor who was converted to Christianity through the ministry of St. Paul. He was also the author of the early ecclesiastical history "The Acts of the Apostles," and devoted the majority of his life to evangelizing the Greeks, ultimately leading to his martyrdom in Euboea (modern Greece.)
