New Testament Notes

Prodigal Son

            Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32). A man divided his estate between his two sons. The younger went off, squandered his portion in riotous living and was finally, in poverty, reduced to tending a farmer’s pigs. He returned home penitently and was joyfully received by his father who said “My boy, you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.” (Luke 15:31). This parable, which teaches the virtues of repentance and forgiveness, is most often represented in art.
See: Rembrandt. The Prodigal Son in the Tavern (Rembrandt and Saskia), The Return of the Prodigal Son.
