The story of the lost son/the prodigal son, which Jesus told in Luke 15:11-32, painted a picture of repentance and forgiveness. I learned the story in Sunday school class at a young age. And during that time and now, one must have read and heard the story read a million times.
Recently, I read a blog post on the popular website patheos.com titled: Lost Truths: What the Prodigal Son Mean. The author claimed the parable was misnamed, and it’s neither about forgiveness nor repentance. He also stated that the parable is an antisemitic allegory gone wild. I have never heard such nonsense and misinterpretation of the gospel.
