The Gracious Father

This is a book first posted on Grace Connection, the Magazine. There is no printed edition. All 30 chapters will appear on the Wheel in the following weeks.

Chapter 10

Luke 15:11-32

Jesus gave A trio of parables in response to the charge of the scribes and Pharisees that he was as bad as the publicans and sinners he associated with. We considered the Parables of the Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin in the previous chapter. This chapter begins our consideration of the Parable of the Lost Son. The entire parable is found in Luke 15:11-32, though in this chapter we shall deal only with verses 11-24. These verses contrast the sinfulness of the younger brother and the great compassion and graciousness of the loving father.
