A Physician…🤔. And we study the occupations of the disciples.


You are called! Be used regardless of what you do, Amen.

“I will make you Fisher’s of Men” Jesus said to His disciples – fishermen.

We read what the disciples did prior to being called by Jesus and filled with The Spirit. https://www.allaboutjesuschrist.org/occupations-of-the-12-disciples-faq.htm

The New Testament mentions Luke briefly a few times, and the Pauline Epistle to the Colossians refers to him as a physician (from Greek for ‘one who heals’); thus he is thought to have been both a physician and a disciple of Paul. Since the early years of the faith, Christians have regarded him as a saint.Died: March 84 AD; Thebes, Boeotia, GreeceBorn: AntiochSyria, Roman EmpireFeast: 18 OctoberPatronage: Artists, bachelors, physicians, surgeons, farmers, and others

Luke died at age 84 in Boeotia, according to a “fairly early and widespread tradition”. According to Nikephoros Kallistos Xanthopoulos, Greek historian of the 14th century (and others), Luke’s tomb was located in Thebes, whence his relics were transferred to Constantinople in the year 357.

The view that Luke-Acts was written by the physician Luke was nearly unanimous in the early Christian church. The Papyrus Bodmer XIV, which is the oldest known manuscript containing the ending of the gospel (dating to around 200 AD), uses the subscription “The Gospel According to Luke“.

How Did the Apostle Luke DieBiblical scholars disagree about the circumstances of Saint Luke’s death. Most Catholic scholars contend that he either died at the age of 84 in Greece, while many Orthodox scholars assert that he was martyred after the death of Saint Paul.

March 84 AD – Luke the Evangelist/ Date of death.

Biblical scholars disagree about the circumstances of Saint Luke’s death. Most Catholic scholars contend that he either died at the age of 84 in Greece, while many Orthodox scholars assert that he was martyred after the death of Saint Paul.

In the Catholic tradition, despite the claims of early Christian writers that Saint Luke was martyred, the earliest documents available to the church attest that the apostle settled in Greece, wrote his gospel and died peacefully at the age of 84 in Boeotia.

Orthodox Church history claims that Saint Luke preached the gospel after the martyrdom of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, attracting the attention of pagan and Jewish citizens. These individuals reportedly told Roman Emperor Nero that he was practicing sorcery. Nero responded by sending for Saint Luke, who had enough time to deliver his books to a local fisherman before the audience. Nero reportedly cut off his right hand, at which point Saint Luke performed a miracle by reattaching it to this body and then separating it again. While this impressed the Emperor’s cabinet, who then professed to believe in Christ, Nero responded by decapitating the entire lot, including Saint Luke, and having the saint’s body cast into the sea.

And we are blessed to read of the occupations of the 12 apostles and more in The bible.

Lawyer’s should feel blessed as well: Zenas the Lawyer (Ancient Greek: Ζηνᾶς) was a first-century Christian mentioned in Paul the Apostle’s Epistle to Titus in the New Testament. In Titus 3:13, Paul writes: “Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them” (KJV).
