St. Luke 15:1-31

In the Name of the Father and of the +Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

 

  1. Intro: the parable of the prodigal son is the most central and programmatic of parables. 

Thesis: God’s love is steadfast

 

  1. Parable in detail: steadfastness of the Father
    1. Wickedness of younger son
    2. Patience of the Father / never disowns the son
    3. Call to a brotherhood of reconciliation

 

  1. In the midst of tragedy: God’s love is steadfast
    1. Two temptations:
      1. Curse God
      2. Wishful insistence on universalism
    2. Biblical counter: Faith
      1. God’s Word promises that His love is steadfast
