      And, for that matter, also the Gospel of Luke, "that you may know the
      truth concerning the things of which you have been informed" (Luke
      1.4), all the more interesting in that this is in the context of Luke's
      reassuring Theophilus of his knowledge and use of oral and written
      records (1.1-3).
