Jesus’ followers who shared the road to Emmaus with Him responded immediately by returning to Jerusalem to share the news and share the joy of salvation with the disciples.
The Gospel of Luke is in the form of a letter to a man named Theophilus. Luke wrote after having carefully investigated all the facts about Christ (1:1-4). Luke documents Christ's life from before his birth through his ministry, death, and resurrection. Jesus carried out his ministry in the power of the Holy Spirit, announcing the good news of salvation. He showed numerous times his compassion for the poor and the outcast. He fulfilled prophecy and carried out his purpose: to seek and save the lost. Luke gives the fullest account of Christ's birth, and only Luke records the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. Luke, a physician and a colleague of Paul, probably wrote this account in the early 60s a.d. He also wrote Acts.

Hell is a real place. And it is the destination of all who do not take advantage of opportunities to believe in God’s saving grace through Jesus Christ. As believers we are called to take advantage of our opportunities to share the Gospel with the lost.
