I think it depends on how you define greatest. Luke did some pretty amazing stuff but Cade was powerful enough to bring dead people back to life

I was curious, figured you would know. Would Anakin Skywalker been stronger than Luke if he had never fell into the lava and lost his limbs and ability to breathe/survive on his own?

Luke is the most powerful Jedi, he would definitely be one of the greatest. The only other contenders for the "greatest" title would be Yoda, possibly Odan-Urr and maybe Satele Shan. Arca Jeth is a few tiers below, as is Bodo-Bass.

Rajivari, Garon Jard, Cala Brin and Ters Sendon were the founders of the Jedi Order, and lay down all the principles and rules/guidelines etc. about how to become a Jedi, you might consider them great that way but in my opinion they are nowhere near as great as Luke, Yoda, Satele, Odan-Urr etc.

He only brought people back from the edge of death. Kreia has done similarly.

Long as he's not being written by Troy Denning, yeah.

Yoda could've done that with his walking stick.

@The_Thunderer: I think what makes Luke special, is that he wasn't as pompous as the other Jedi, it had been too long since any of them had a worthy foe, Palpatine knew that and could use it against them, he wasn't so lucky when it came to LUKE, Luke Skywalker knew what it was like to be up against impossible odds and realized that he had to work hard and stop underestimating the empire because for all their "good intentions" they were still ruthless and powerful enough to get away with it! In fact, the only reason he left Yoda before he was fully trained was because he was afraid of what would happen to his friends if he DIDN'T. So he wasn't arrogant enough to think that he could defeat the entire empire single-handedly, he just wanted to see if he could help! This was actually rather brave of him but it backfired when he underestimated Darth Vader and was pretty much humiliated when he tried to fight him the first time, Luke DID however learn not to make the same mistake again and this time it was Darth Vader who underestimated LUKE! So things only went bad for Luke when he assumed the Emperor was powerless without Darth Vader to hide behind anymore. BIG MISTAKE. However, that NOT all Luke's fault, so technically, Luke Skywalker may not be the greatest Jedi ever, but he's pretty close if only becuae the main reason he ever loses a fight is when he's outmatched, overwhelmed, or just plain unlucky!
