1 7. Introduction to the  Gospel of Luke “Although Matthew is divided into more chapters than Luke, Luke’s account of the ministry of Jesus Christ is the longest of the four canonical Gospels in actual length . . .

Furthermore, its style and sensitivities— particularly toward women, Gentiles, and the poor and oppressed generally—set it apart from the other synoptic Gospels.” (Holzapfel, Huntsman, and Wayment, Jesus Christ and the World of the New Testament , 108) Cappella Tornabuoni, “St. Luke the Evangelist,” 1486-90
