Luke 1:1-4

1Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled
Or been surely believed
among us,
2just as they were handed down to us by those who from the first were eye witnesses and servants of the word. 3With this in mind, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I too decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, 4so that you may know the certainty of the things you have been taught.
