Parable of the Two Lost Sons
Elder David Crawford, pastor of Macclenny Primitive Baptist Church (FL), was guest minister for our June 2019 5th Weekend Meeting. His message on Saturday evening (6/29/19) was taken from the familiar parable recorded in Luke 15 popularly known as the parable of the Prodigal Son. But Elder Crawford is careful to highlight that both of the boys in this story were prodigals, paralleling the two groups of Jesus' hearers referenced in verse 1, i.e. the "sinners" and the "Pharisees." Far from a mere retelling of this beloved parable, however, this message offers fresh insights concerning the position held by the older son, and contrasting his reluctance to sacrifice for his brother with our Elder Brother's willingness to sacrifice for us.
