Luke historian?

Gospel of Luke and Acts represent 1/4th of the whole New Testament. Luke is a historian who writes literarily, he is a theologian and he is an evangelist. GE Ladd captured the challenge posed by the expansiveness of his vision in reporting what he heard and saw. “The supernatural dimension of the Kingdom of God which has invaded history in the person of Jesus Christ Jesus creates an insoluble problem for the historian as historian, for he knows nothing of supernatural events; he can deal only with purely natural occurrences. The evidence of the supernatural is inexplicable to the historian. That is why the person of Jesus presents a continuing problem to historical scholarship, for the essential fact of his person and mission transcends historical explanation.”
