The well-known story of the Lost or “Prodigal” (meaning wastefully extravagant) Son is the longest of Jesus’ recorded parables and one of the most profound. It follows the Parables of the Lost Sheep and the Lost Coin as the final member of a trilogy of parables about redemption that were given when the Pharisees and other religious leaders criticized Jesus for mingling with “sinners.” Unlike the previous two parables of Luke 15, however, this parable does not stress God’s searching for the lost, but rather His willingness to allow the son free moral agency, and to wait until the lost son himself desires to return. 807 more words
