    Remember to use this scripture if you ever come across a Jehovah's Witness, as it completely debunks their shunning doctrine especially regarding family.

    Luke 15:1-32 Jesus mind is on SALVATION, and many people came to hear Jesus message but, notice in verse 1-2 there are some with the people, leadership, who were against both Jesus and the people desiring to hear Jesus.

    Luke 15:1-2 Jesus message is on SALVATION, and many people came to hear Jesus message but, notice there are those of the people who were against both Jesus and others of the people, especially against those who desired to hear the message of SALVATION.

    When we sin, so many times, we do not see it for ourselves. The son that had stayed with the the father, was full of pride, and it blinded him. Yes, sometimes, we look at things in a earthly way, but never look on why are we feeling this way, and if you do, the road leads back to sin in our hearts. God is not a respecter of persons. Sometimes, like David, have to impress themselves in the Lord.

    Please check out the following verses: Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; 1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

    Steve: Woe! Jesus is not "the end of our faith" as you stated! JUDE:20 .."BUILDING UP YOURSELVES ON YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH". we overcome satan and his lies by our faith which comes by the Word of GOD Romans 10:17. Matt18:6,1John5:4
  • Steve
    It takes what the younger son endured to seek mercy from God. And, God is One, not three, as Christians seem to think. Jesus represents the end of our faith, once we recognize the Truth, last the body is mortal, obviously, but the Spirit is everlasting, and the gift, which the other son took for granted, is given to those who read and understand the Word, the truth and live their lives according

    I love reading the KJV of the Bible. your commentary and discussion words a good to read along with reading the scriptures.. after reading these helps, I like to go back and read the KJV of His Presence Word and it has a deepen meaning in my heart.

    this was Jesus talking this is a lesson we should not be selfish and we should forgive
  • BSP
    Verse 32~The loving father was trying to encourage the older son to be forgiving. His brother was spiritually dead and the father was happy that he repented and was not literally dead. We must show mercy to those who are repentant.

    Verse 8-10: The woman is Zion (Jeremiah 6:2), Light a candle (Psalms 18:28
  • A disciple
    One thing is clearly missing from the younger son's repentance and return to his father; and that is the popular but unscriptural idea of "accepting Jesus!" When he came to himself and saw his dreadful condition as it truly was; the result of his sins! He saw himself as unfit to even be called a son! He didn't say, O father, now I accept you! but, Father, I am not worthy, BUT PLEASE ACCEPT ME!
  • A disciple
    "I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance." The comparison between "one sinner that repents," and, "just persons who need no repentance," is not to say that there is a class of people who don't need to repent; but that holier than thou despising of others IS NOT THE ATTITUDE OF HEAVEN!
  • Eutychus
    "And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends". Would to God we had sons like this today. Nor was I a son such as this one. I was the prodigal. How would this world be, if all sons were like this today? The prodigal son returned as well...

    praise the lord for his mercy that he grants the born again christian
    repentance when we sin or no one would have a chance to escape
    hell without what jesus christ has done for us at calvarys cross
    for our grace are we saved through faith it
    is not of yourselves it is the gift of GOD not of works lest any
    man should boost. ephesians 2-8

    Pursue after Christ like the shepherd pursued after the one lost sheep.
    Our life is not our own. It is God's.
  • A disciple
    Son of David; I like your kind and non-condemning way to look at it, but I think the younger son was rather looking for the party than a way to make his living. He squandered all his money on sin and selfishness, and brought disgrace to his father's name; and his repentance was marked by acknowledging the truth that he was not fit to be called anymore a son, and acceptance of his punishment.
  • Son of David
    The prodigal son did what everyone does. He goes off into the world seeking his fortune, his way in the world. For some find great wealth but it doesn't sustain them. Some fall between the cracks and are in want. It is they who are most likely to return to the Father and ask for forgiveness. And the Father will turn none away who ask. Those still in the world will not ask.
  • Eric
    Jesus has already forgiven us, even in the middle of our transgression. All we need to do is accept His forgiveness.
  • Jerry
    verse 20-Two points: The son was always a son before, during and after his departure. He didn't waste his being a son. He wasted his connection, benefit, relationship, enjoyment of being a son. He didn't return asking to be a son again. He was hungry. His hunger is what brought him home.
    The main character in the story is the father.He ran to his son and welcomed him home before his son spoke
  • Anne
    This chapter teaches us about repentance, forgiveness and love.
  • A disciple
    Many of us were indeed like the younger son, and some like the elder son. The younger son was very stupid and selfish, and his youth and inexperience cost him dearly in the sinful way he fell into. The older brother might have had an opportunity to go looking for his brother, instead of just being angry at him. The sinner is to be condemned, and that's what he does to himself when he repents.
  • Richard Kumar
    What do we know about the father and son's name etc. in Luke 15: 11-21?
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Many of us are prodigal sons striving to return to the warm embrace of Jesus and celebration in heaven of a returning lost soul. Thank Jesus for His forgiving spirit.
  • Zeingoff
    The lost sheep. Though one has the security if a flock yet will he leave all to search for what is missing. The same for the woman misplacing a coin. She will search for the lost coin even though what she has is adequate. The son didn't appreciate money but wasted it. All depict worldly life. It isn't enough. Who will love his life the world will lose it. Repent is to regret and change
  • Brandy Essex
    My thought: When we as children of God fall from grace we must recognize that God hands is still stretch and He is still married to the backslider. There should never be an act of condemnation towards that backslider because God is the one who condemns. What we as saints should realize is when God is in control there is victory and where victory is there is power.

    What a world: And the publican, standing far off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven,but smote upon his breast, saying,God be merciful to me a sinner. Luke 18:10-13.
    In the Greek, publican is a tax collector.
    Romans 3:10-11 as it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one:11: There is none that understanding, there is none that seeketh after God.

    I love God no matter whatβœ…πŸ˜πŸ˜˜
  • BSP
    The parable of the prodigal son shows that God really cares about his children who lose their way. He is a loving Father who is just waiting for his children to return.
  • Wally
    My thoughts is that the father is always looking for us. when we realise our wrongs and repent Jesus simply forgives us. its that simple amen.
