The Promised Light

The Bible is chock full of references to light and darkness. Many times these are in reference to spiritual realities. Light denotes holiness and good, while darkness is sin and depravity. Several of these light and darkness passages are prophecies of the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32)

Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son is one of His most loved stories. But Jesus makes it clear from the outset that it is the tale of two sons. The younger son takes his inheritance and squanders it. But what about the older son? There is much to learn from the experiences and conduct of both.

If she followed their directives, she would survive. If not, they would not be responsible for her demise.
