00:01 I would like to go back
00:02 to the Parable of the Prodigal Son,
00:04 we are in chapter 15 and we are looking at verse 23,
00:08 "And bring hither the fatted calf,
00:10 and kill it and let us eat, and be merry."
00:14 Now who was being killed here in the Parable?
00:17 What did he deserve to be sac--
00:20 why did he deserve to be sacrificed
00:23 while he didn't deserve to be sacrificed?
00:25 Couldn't we feast without that?
00:27 Wasn't the calf innocent and the Prodigal Son guilty?
00:31 Yes, but listen in Hebrews 9:22 it says,
00:35 "Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin."
00:40 Jesus, so that we could rejoice,
00:43 He rejoiced to die on our behalf.
00:48 And so in the Parable of the Prodigal Son,
00:51 even the symbolic calf
00:53 is the center of the whole Parable.
00:55 This is Jesus and all that we enjoy together,
00:59 all that we enjoy in this world
01:01 is blood bought at the cross of Calvary.
01:05 The whole Bible is based on that sacrifice.
01:10 May God bless you all.
