During his life and ministry Jesus had several confrontations with the religious leaders of his day. During the last period of his life these confrontations became more frequent, intense and personal. Such is the case recorded in Luke 15. Jesus was being criticized by the Pharisees for sharing his message with sinners. In response Jesus told them three parables:
-The Lost Sheep
-The Lost Coin
-The Lost Son (Prodigal Son)
Each parable contained the same message of God’s desire for sinners to be reached with the message of salvation. But the last parable of the Prodigal Son contained a surprise and different ending. The ending was aimed at the Pharisees and described their attitude. It caused quite a firestorm!
I invite you and your family to join me Sunday at 10:00 AM as we study this interesting portion of scripture.
