Sermon Series on Luke 15
Jesus told a lot of parables to communicate the message of the gospel. In Luke 15 He tells three parables, but perhaps the most shocking is the Parable of the Two Sons. In this parable we see bold love, restoration, repentance and forgiveness. The good news that Jesus brings to us is that all sinners are welcomed to the party, but only those who see themselves for who they really are will accept the invitation.
Week 1 – Luke 15:1-10
Week 2 – Luke 15:11-24
Week 3 – Luke 15:17-32
Week 4 – Luke 15:17-32
The arabic lettering in the graphic is arranged to summarize the relationship between the two brothers to their father and his house. Kenneth E. Bailey explains the typography in The Cross and the Prodigal:
The decorative Arabic calligraphy says “And he said, ‘A certain man had two sons.’”The characters on the right symbolize the younger son, who stands outside his father’s fellowship in rebellion. The older son (the characters on the left) seems to have a tenuous hold within the house, but in reality he too stands outside.
Graphics like this serve as visual tools for Christian missionaries when they share stories cross-culturally.
