Approach: Reading the Parable of the Lost Son / Prodigal Son.

Hermeneutic objective: Practicing good observation of each character of the parable.

Theological objective: The Parable of the Prodigal Son is often focused on the lost wayward son; however, just as important is Jesus Christ’s message to more spiritually mature and obedient Believers. God does not love just those who are obedient to Him, He loves all who seek His forgiveness and return to Him. God's great agapē love is all about eternal life with Him.
