Luke was 84 years old when the wicked idolaters tortured him for the sake of Christ and hanged him from an olive tree in the town of Thebes, in Boethia. He was the patron of the medical profession. He was reported to be a fine painter and is also patron of artists, painters, sculptors, craft workers and lacemakers. Ephesus Half Day Toursefeshhh

 

His symbol was the bull, the third symbolical beast mentioned by Ezekiel (1:10), which is a symbol of Christ’s sacrificial and priestly office, as pointed out by St. Irenaeus. In Ephesus, there was a circular structure which was described as the grave of St Luke because of the bull carved into the door. Ephesus Half Day Tours
