Saint Luke

St. Luke

Luke was a physician and is perhaps the only non-Jewish New Testament writer, being Greek.  It is generally held that he was a native of Antioch.  He first appears in Acts at Troas (16.8) where he meets St. Paul and after the vision crosses over with him to Europe as an Evangelist.

Luke is the most extensive writer in the New Testament and the most literary.  The style of the gospel is superior to any New Testament writing except Hebrews, which he may have had a share in authoring.  He must have frequently met St. Peter, and may have assisted him to draw up his First Epistle in Greek

His symbol is an ox, a sacrificial animal, because his gospel begins in the temple with the priest Zechariah.
