Today, Pastor Christiaan finishes his exploration into the Lost Chapter of Luke.
Last week, we looked at the art of disruption and how Jesus flipped the conventional wisdom on it’s head by telling the story of three lost things, the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin, and the Lost (prodigal) Son. Last week, he took a more conventional look at them – especially with the Lost Son.
This week, Pastor Christiaan took it in reverse, by looking at the Older Brother’s response to the Lost Son and the Father’s restoration. How that looked in the context of the Lost Coin, and Lost Sheep, and how we can relate that to ourselves.
He argued three main points (this is a Baptist Church after all),
1. The older son’s relationship with the father was just as damaged.
2. The older son is just as prodigal.
3. The older brother de-personed the younger brother.
(Oh, it’s Halloween, so he dressed as a variant of the 4th Doctor).
