The parable of the prodigal son is perhaps one of Jesus most famous parables and probably the best loved parable of all times. The story has found its way in the arts through paintings, stage plays and sculptures. The parable of the prodigal son has also found its way in literature and even popular music.
The parable of the prodigal son is found in the Gospel of Luke chapter 15 verses 11 to 32. The story opens with Jesus telling the story of a man who has two sons. The opening statement of verse 11 will indicate to us that the story is about “Two sons” not just about one son. The error most Christians, readers and even some preachers commit when reading the parable of the prodigal son is focusing on the “prodigal son” only hence the story is often called “the parable of the prodigal son” when in reality the story is not about the parable of the prodigal son, but it is a parable of two sons.
As I have said before, I have been an ardent supporter of expository preaching which is a form preaching that expounds upon the meaning of a particular text or passage of Scripture in light of its contextual, grammatical, historical, geographical and cultural context. I believe expository preaching should be the only way to preach the Bible since it more strictly adheres to the original meaning, intention, or message that God wants his people to hear.
John MacArthur, one of today’s most prominent expository preachers has come up with a book entitled “A Tale of two sons.” Since I am a ministry partner of Grace to You ministries, they sent me a copy of the book. After I read the book, I gave it away.
