EXPANDED EDITION (2023) by Malcolm Smith, "This Son of Mine" - with 3 NEW bonus chapters.
I invite you to join me on a journey into the amazing story that Jesus told of the father and his two sons. The general outline of the story is well known, but seeing its movements through the eyes of the first hearers, listening through the customs of that people, and hearing it as they heard it opens up new horizons that can be missed if we read through our Western eyes. It becomes quickly obvious that this is not a soft, sentimental, mushy story of a loser coming home. Jesus is revealing the God-who-is-love in stark contrast to the false god of accusation and judgment, who is exposed and dismantled in this story. The parable constitutes the war cry of the Prince of Peace! Jesus is throwing down the gauntlet to the religious leaders and their teaching that held the populace in fear and bondage. It is a story that will set every human free.
Take the hand of the Holy Spirit and come with me into the most radical story Jesus ever told.
