Both style and language offer convincing evidence that the same person wrote Luke and Acts. "The former account" of Acts 1:1 then is likely a reference to the third Gospel as the first of a two-volume series, and the fact that the writer dedicates both books to Theophilus also strongly argues for common authorship. Written 59-75 A.D.
Just as Jesus showed compassion by laying his hands on lepers and delivering people from their afflictions, so he is personally concerned for each of us and ready to meet our needs .
And all bare him witness and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth And they said Is not this Joseph s son And he said unto them Ye will surely say unto me this proverb Physician heal thyself whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum do also here in thy country And he said Verily I say unto you No prophet is accepted in his own country But I tell you of a truth many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias when the heaven was shut up three years and six months when great famine was throughout all the land But unto none of them was Elias sent save unto Sarepta a city of Sidon unto a woman that was a widow And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet and none of them was cleansed saving Naaman the Syrian And all they in the synagogue when they heard these things were filled with wrath And rose up and thrust him out of the city and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built that they might cast him down headlong But he passing through the midst of them went his way And came down to Capernaum a city of Galilee and taught them on the sabbath days And they were astonished at his doctrine for his word was with power And in the synagogue there was a man which had a spirit of an unclean devil and cried out with a loud voice Saying Let us alone what have we to do with thee thou Jesus of Nazareth art thou come to destroy us I know thee who thou art the Holy One of God,

And I say unto you Ask and it shall be given you seek and ye shall find knock and it shall be opened unto you.
