In the center of the gospel of Luke, Jesus tells a story that revolves around a father and his two sons. The story is meant to shock and challenge what people think about God, love, religion, and forgiveness. In the story, Jesus masterfully paints a picture of a father with a love so strong that listeners will either take offense or stand in awe. Jesus tells of a love so fierce, so powerful, so shockingly and painfully steadfast...that it was scandalous to his audience. The love Jesus speaks of shatters categories; and is wide enough for both the wayward rebel and the self-righteous critic. Journey with us these next four weeks as we discovery the power of the love of a father.
