The Father's Welcome Story

The father heard from his younger son, "I want thrills, excitement, and a chance to be funky and free." Why? He deserved it. After all, he was "young, and healthy, and rich and extremely good-looking." The father heard from his older son, "Dabnabbit. That just don’t seem fair, Pa. No sir." The biggest question is: what was the Father's take on all of this? Jesus tells an every-man story in hopes we get the message.

Series Information

Terry proclaims the one Gospel through the history, research, rememberings and faith expressed in the text of the Gospel According to Luke. Jesus himself is the good news expressed by Luke. Beginning with the birth narratives unique to Luke's presentation, the good news of the Kingdom explodes into faithful view as each account, teaching, parable and event lived out and offered by Jesus, the Messiah-King, is examined the way Luke seemingly examined Jesus in his own work. Here we find a Jesus to love, a Jesus to follow, and ultimately a Jesus to worship.
