Luke 1 - Clearing things Up, Once and for a while

Luke starts out on an interesting note. He says that many people had “undertaken” to write out an account of Jesus, but he was going to do a better, more thorough job than they had in order to clear up any doubts that his man Theophilus may have had. This means that there were doubts in those days about what really went on in Jesus’ life. The old telephone game was at work before there were even telephones. It should come as no surprise that today we have other erroneous books popping up (the Gospels of Thomas and Judas to name 2) now and again in the mainstream media. This isn’t a new game or a remarkable discovery, just the same old that Luke was writing to clear up. He wanted to Reset some incorrect thinking that was out there.
