Luke 1:1–4; Luke 24:25–27

Dedication to Theophilus

Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that ahave been accomplished among us, bjust as those who cfrom the beginning were deyewitnesses and eministers of fthe word ghave delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write han orderly account for you, imost excellent jTheophilus, that you may have kcertainty concerning the things lyou have been taught.


25 And he said to them, O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 kWas it not necessary that lthe Christ should suffer these things and enter into mhis glory? 27 And nbeginning with oMoses and pall the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.
