"I too have decided, after investigating everything accurately anew to write it down in an orderly sequence for you, most excellent Theophilus."​

Luke  1:1-4; 4:14-21


Many scholarly treatises have been speculated about the identity of "Theophilus" the person to whom St. Luke addresses his Gospel.  The Greek name means "Friend of God."  Was Theophilus a friend of St Luke, a powerful government official, or a pagan seeking to know more about Jesus?  Was St. Luke addressing his record of the life and teachings of Jesus to every person who seeks to be a friend of God?  Is it possible that St. Luke was cleverly saying "God is a Friend of all of us?"  Or was Theophilus all of the above?  Does it really matter.  Whoever Theophilus was to St. Luke, we are all friends of God and God is our Friend.  It was our Friend God who gave Isaiah the Word that a messiah would come to save us.  It was that Word of our Friend God that Jesus read in the synagogue in his home town of Nazareth and announced that the Word had been fulfilled in their midst.  The people of Nazareth rejected the Word of our Friend God; they rejected Jesus.  Do we accept the Word of our Friend God?  Do we accept Jesus as our Savior and Lord; as the Messiah?  Do we believe the Word became Flesh and dwelt amongst us?


Let us continue to pray for each other.  May the Good Lord bless you and keep you close to Himself.  


Your servant in Christ,

Fr. Mick Greer
