Definition: a parable is "a short, simple story, usually of an occurrence of a familiar kind, from which a moral or religious lesson may be drawn." "A prodigal is one who is exceedingly or recklessly wasteful," Webster's New World College Dictionary
Luke 15:13-24 (the first prodigal).
Luke 15:25-32 (the second prodigal)
The older son had to be a Pharisee. Why? The Pharisees:
1. Worked hard to please God.
2. Obeyed most of God's Laws and some they had added.
3. Were critical of Jesus for associating with sinners.
4. And they refused to have anything to do with those who had converted.
(Verses 29-30) The older son resented his wayward brother.
Look how the Father responded. (verses 31-32) This is a picture of grace, salvation through Jesus Christ.
