LOST & FOUND: THE YOUNGER BROTHER

LUKE 15:11-24

INTRO: MANY AD AGENCIES ARE PAID BIG BUCKS TO COME UP WITH CLEVER SLOGANS FOR CO.  “BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS”  “JUST DO IT”  “GOOD TO THE LAST DROP”—CHURCHES COME UP MISSION OR PURPOSE STATEMENTS BUT HOWEVER THEY ARE WORDED OR PRINTED THE CHURCH MUST BE INTENTIONAL ABOUT REACHING LOST (NOT JUST PAID STAFF) (EX: ROBERT COSBY IS RETIRED ALA. DOCTOR—HE TOOK OVER $3 MILLION HE INVESTED IN STOCKS OVER THE YRS AND BOUGHT VIDEO TAPES OF “JESUS FILM”—HE WANTED EVERY ALA. RESIDENT (1.7 MILLION) TO GET A COPY OF THE TAPE)

THIS PARABLE IS BEST KNOWN OF JESUS’ PARABLES & REFLECTS WHAT WAS MOST ON JESUS’MIND/HEART. JESUS CONSISTENTLY CLASHED WITH PHARISEES—HE UNMASKED THEIR HYPOCRISY & LOWERED THEIR HONOR STATUS—THESE 3 PARABLES WERE MEANT TO EXPOSER THE PHARISEES EVIL INTENTIONS AND THEIR HYPPOCRISY—THE THEME OF THESE 3 IS JOY IN HEAVEN OVER REPENTANCE OF SINNERS—CELEBRATION OF FINDING LOST SHEEP & COIN IS EXAGGERATED AND IS MEANT TO BE—THE SHEPHERD/WOMAN AND FATHER ARE ALL SYMBOLS OF CHRIST
