Robertson Dean's spellbinding performance makes this fictionalized account of the life of Luke especially believable. Dean captures the culture and spirit of a slave named Loukon, later known as Luke in the New Testament gospels, who lived in Syrian Antioch in 20 AD. Dean portrays Theophilus, Loukon's kind owner, with compassion as he agrees to pay the teen's tuition to school to learn medicine. Dean’s depiction of Loukan's meeting with the heretical killer Saul, later known as the Apostle Paul, on the road to Damascus, is dramatic and believable. Seamless dialogues between Paul and Luke and later on between Jesus's mother, Mary, and Luke are powerfully characterized. Dean brings the ancient Mediterranean biblical world to life.
