Sermon of the week: “A Tale of Two Sons” by John MacArthur.

John MacArthur Your sermon of the week is a wonderful exposition of the parable of the prodigal son like you’ve never heard before, entitled A Tale of Two Sons. This sermon by John MacArthur was delivered at the 2006 Resolved Conference.

I found this to be a delightfully fresh teaching on this well-known parable, an insight that will make you look at this parable in a whole new–and much deeper–light.

  1. The Lord Jesus once described a young man who left his father’s home, spent everything he had, and wound up miserable and humiliated. Finally, one day, he decided enough was enough, and, according to Luke 15:17, he “came to himself.”

    If you are like this wayward son – broke, miserable, and humiliated – and if you have never received Christ as your Savior, it will do you no good to “come to yourself” – for you do not have the keys to eternal life. A person who has only been born once in this life may “come to himself” and return to his “father,” but his father is the “father of lies.” (John 8:44)

    The prodigal son came to himself, and remembered that he had a loving and truthful Father. If you have trusted Jesus and been born again into God’s family, you may “come to yourself” and find His Spirit there within you, ready to forgive you and send you back to the Father.


  2. This is in my estimation, one of the best exposition on the “Prodigal Sons” sermon I have ever heard, and read.
    For those who have never heard MacArhtur’s exposition, you should listen to it!
    It contain a shocking end that I think is appropriate and warranted
