Section Love to Lystra (the other sections → key00.htm)
- John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” → eca048.htm
- Love towards other humans is a central part of righteousness. → ega086.htm

- Faith must go hand in hand with love, including good works. → eba098.htm
- Some have claimed Romans 13:10 to mean that love is the same as “the fulfilment of the law of the Old Covenant”. Is that correct? → eca066.htm
- Love of money – the literal meaning of the Greek text in 1 Timothy 6:10 appears to be “for the love of money is a root of all these evils”. The context shows what particular evils Paul referred to. → ema089.htm
- Lying is not reconcilable with love. If one lies to someone, then one does not respect that person. And, if one does not respect people, then one does not love them either. → eoa056.htm
- Paul to the saints in Colosse, “but above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection” (Colossians 3). → eba057.htm
- Look also under the headings “Good works” and “Righteousness”.
LSR (A bible-translation.) → esa095.htm
- Some writers have claimed that the Latin word lucifer is “a name of Satan”. But, the Bible does not say that. The word “lucifer” does not appear in the Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek texts of the Bible. → (eda056.htm)
- Regarding Satan the Devil, see the article eda047.htm.
Luke, saint Luke
- Regarding “the book of Luke” or “the gospel of Luke”, see a few lines down.
- The name Luke (Greek Loukas) appears only in Colossians 4:14, 2 Timothy 4:11 and Philemon 1:24. It is said that Loukas was a contracted Greek form of the Latin name Lucanus which meant “Lucanian”, “of Lucania”. (Lucania is a district in southern Italy.)
- Had Luke worked as a “physician”, as some bible-versions make it seem? Some have translated the phrase ho iatros ho agapêtos in Colossians 4:14 as “beloved physician”, but it is not clear what the noun iatros really refers to in that case. Iatros meant “healer”, from the verb iaomai, “to heal”, which appears in some 20 NT passages, among them Luke 9:2. It could be that Luke was a “healer” in the meaning that he had the gift of healing of the type that is mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12:9 and 12:28–30.
- The book or gospel of Luke – that book is in fact anonymous. The name “Luke” does not appear in that book, and we do not know who wrote it. Catholic writers have claimed that it was written by Luke, but that cannot be verified.
- Look also under the heading “Acts (the book of Acts)”.

LXXE (An English bible-translation.) → esa095.htm
Lycia (Acts 27:5) – Lycia was a region on the southwest coast of Asia Minor (in what today is Asiatic Turkey), by the Mediterranean.
- Lydia (Acts 16:14 and Acts 16:40) was a person’s name, but also a geographical area in the western part of what today is Asiatic Turkey. The borders of Lydia are not easy to define, and they varied with time.
Lying – Look under the heading “Liars, lies, lying”.
- Lystra was an inland town in what today is Asiatic Turkey, circa 240 kilometres west of the apostle Paul’s hometown Tarsus. Lystra is mentioned in Acts 14:6, 8 and 21 and 16:1 and 2, and in 2 Timothy 3:11.
- Some writers have claimed that Timothy was born in Lystra, but the Bible only says that Paul met Timothy there.
