Transcript of Saint Luke

Saint Luke Saint Luke was the author of the third Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. He was born in Antioch, an ancient city in Syria, Rome, which is now Antakya, Turkey. He died around 150 A.D. at the age of 84 years in Thebes, Greece. Historians questioned the identity of the body marked as St. Luke's. They suspected his body may have been replaced in Greece or Turkey and were curious if the body really was of Syrian origin, or if it was of Turkish or Greek origin. Scientists got mtDNA from his body and tested it against samples from the Syria, Turkey, and Greece populations in order to determine its origin. A whole canine tooth, a tooth root, and other bone fragments were collected from the casket that allegedly held St. Luke's body. The canine tooth DNA was tested against Syria, Greece, and Turkey populations and found that it was most likely of Syrian origin, showing that the body was probably St. Luke's Source:
