The Evangelist Luke: A New Series

I am interested in the authorial traditions about the four Gospels. I have published on the church traditions about Mark, the interpreter of Peter, and John, the beloved disciple who was buried in Ephesus; I am currently working on the traditions about Matthew the toll-collector. This leaves the evangelist Luke, the physician and co-worker of Paul. A significance piece of evidence in favour of Lukan authorship of both the Gospel of Luke and the book of Acts is the presence of the first-person pronoun “we” in select verses in the latter work. Did the author travel around with Paul for the scenes where the “we” appears? My plan is to look at the evidence for and against the Lukan authorship of the third canonical Gospel in more detail.
