    -- Howard Culbertson,


One major theme that resonates throughout both the Gospels of Luke and John is the concept of divine love and compassion. In Luke's Gospel, this theme is exemplified through Jesus's teachings on forgiveness, mercy, and inclusion of the marginalized. His parables, such as the Prodigal Son and the Good Samaritan, emphasize the boundless love of God and the importance of extending that love to others. Similarly, in John's Gospel, the theme of divine love is portrayed through Jesus's profound relationship with his disciples and his sacrificial death on the cross. Jesus' well-known wordsm "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son," encapsulates the overarching message of love and redemption present in both Gospels. Through their narratives, Luke and John convey the transformative power of God's love and its ability to bring hope and salvation to all humanity.
