An Illustrated Commentary on the Gospels According to Mark and Luke, Vol. 2 : For Family Use and Reference, and for the Great Body of Christian Workers of All Denominations (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from An Illustrated Commentary on the Gospels According to Mark and Luke, Vol. 2: For Family Use and Reference, and for the Great Body of Christian Workers of All Denominations Inﬂuence of Paul. An ancient tradition re ports that the Gospel of Mark was written under the inﬂuence of Peter (see Intro. To Mark's Gos pel); and that of Luke under the inﬂuence of Paul. NO great weight is to be attached to the mere tradition but there are some circumstances, both internal and external, which give color to this as a reasonable surmise. We know from some allusions in Paul's Epistles, and from more allusions in the Book Of Acts, that Luke was Paul's constant companion; and from our knowl edge Of Paul's character we may well surmise that he would have put forth a powerful and effective inﬂuence on the mind Of his traveling companion, and one that could hardly have failed to affect materially the tone and spirit of his writing. And when we turn to the Gospel Of Luke there are not wanting indications of that inﬂuence. Of all the apostles Paul was the one who must dwell upon the universality of the Gospel of Christ, its adaptation to and its wel come for all men Of all races, classes, beliefs and conditions. And of all the Gospels, the Gospel of Luke is the one in which this aspect Of Christ's life and teaching is the most predominant.
