The Younger Son’s Welcome Story
The younger son told his father, "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." Well, that's one way to tell the story of one of the wasteful sons. How does it match your story? Jesus tells an every-man story in hopes we get the message.
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.
