TSNTyndale Study Notes:

1:1 Many people have set out to write accounts: Luke was not the first to put the history of Jesus into written form. Most scholars believe that Luke used Mark’s Gospel and other written and oral sources in his writing.
• fulfilled: This word can simply mean “accomplished,” but Luke is thinking of Jesus’ fulfillment of Old Testament promises (4:21; 24:44).


UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: figures-of-speech / activepassive

περὶ τῶν πεπληροφορημένων ἐν ἡμῖν πραγμάτων

concerning the /having_been/_fully_assured among us matters

If it would be helpful in your language, you could express this with an active form. Alternate translation: “about those things that have happened among us”

Note 2 topic: figures-of-speech / exclusive

ἐν ἡμῖν

among us

Luke dedicates this book to a man named Theophilus. It is no longer known exactly who he was. But since Luke says in 1:4 that he wants Theophilus to know that the things he has been taught are reliable, it appears that he was a follower of Jesus. So here the word us would include him.
