What Is A PRODIGAL, Anyway? Even if you%u2019ve never read the bible, chances are you%u2019ve heard the term %u2018prodigal son%u2019. Our pop culture society simply defines a prodigal child as a kid who goes out, gets in trouble, feels sorry about what they%u2019ve done and then comes back home to eat some humble pie. That is tragically, painfully oversimplifying this beautiful story found in the Gospel of Luke. Lost And Found In LUKE 15, Jesus told three stories. Each story was masterfully crafted, as only the Lord could do, to illustrate examples of someone losing a possession (be it a sheep, a coin or a child) and then the ultimate joy they feel when they recover the lost item. It%u2019s a remarkable testament to how our Heavenly Father feels about us when we return to Him. There Was A Man Who Had Two Sons In this bible study, iPRODIGAL, author Martin Blake Cole takes you through each verse of the story of the lost son %u2013 or sons, as you%u2019ll come to realize. He includes real-life examples of humor and heartache involving his own two sons in order to illustrate some of the biblical principles found in this most-famous parable that Jesus delivered to the %u201Csinners%u201D surrounding him and to the Pharisees prowling close by. As much as this is the story of a father dealing with rebellious children, it is the story of a relationship between brothers. Rebellion, Reckless Stupidity, Disgrace, Humility, Desperation, Repentance, Acceptance, Joy This epic story covers the full gamut of emotions as each child turns against his father. While one child%u2019s return brings great joy, it causes some deep-seeded emotions to erupt out of the other child. This bible study asks: Which person are you most like in this story? The rebellious child who repents? The ever-vigilant father, who is anxious to forgive? The older son, who is bitter with rage and resentment?
