The Older Son’s Welcome Story
Jesus, again, tells this every-man story in hopes we get the message the Pharisees missed. Being the older brother is probably the more significant challenge for the church than the younger son story we're fascinated with when we read Luke 15. This isn't a story about one son but of two, and the second son might be pointing squarely at you (and me!).
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.
