The Waiting Father – Luke 15:11-32

This parable is commonly known as the Prodigal Son. Traditionally the emphasis of exegesis is placed on the repentance of the prodigal son and the reconciliation to the father. Such interpretation raises two questions: How do we explain the absence of Jesus the Saviour, as well as the weak relation of the complaint of the elder son to the call to repentance? The Lord Jesus could have ended the parable at verse 24. Yet he did not. So, he must have more to say to the original audience and present readers of the Gospel account.
