St Luke Gospel in the new testament is believed to be written by Luke a gentile doctor.

We don't know who wrote any of the New Testament gospels because they were all originally anonymous. However, a second-century tradition determined that Paul's companion, Luke, was the author of one of the gospels, primarily because he was a gentile who knew Paul and could thus write about Paul.

In Colossians 4:14, Luke is described as a well-loved physician. This is inconclusive evidence because most New Testament scholars now assume that Colossians was written in Paul's name many years after his death, implying that the author knew Luke solely from Paul's own epistles. Paul only mentions it once, in Philemon 1, in his uncontested epistles: below are bible verses extracts describing Luke the physician.

Colossians 4:14

Luke the beloved physician greets you, as does Demas.

2 Timothy 4:11 

Luke alone is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, for he is very useful to me for ministry.

Luke 1:1-4 

Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught.

Philemon 1:24 

And so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers
