A Tale of Two Sons: MacArthur

In any preacher’s collection, there are a few sermons that rise above the others and move upon his congregation in a very impactful way.  John MacArthur’s 5 part series on the parable of the prodigal son is just such a series.  MacArthur related in an interview that there was a noticable impact of these messages on the Sun Valley congregation, and the response led to John publishing the series as the book ‘A Tale of Two Sons.’

This is a moving exposition of this well-known parable, which ends much differently than you probably have ever realized.

  1. Thanks FBH,

    But if it ends much differently than I have ever probably realized- do you suppose it was intended to be this inscrutable?
    Hope to be publishing a critique on this paradigm at my blog shortly.

    Love,
    Ron

  2. Ron, the ending is not unique to MacArthur, so it’s not new. MacArthur picks up on it because he preaches with a strong understanding of the context, and the context (fulfilled by history) answers the unanswered question that the parable closes with.
