Jesus once told a story about a father with two sons. The youngest wanted to leave the house. His father lets him go.
Often Jesus is telling stories, situations that are just reflecting normal life. But everywhere in these stories, you find special things, something weird, sometimes shocking, sometimes surprising. How did this boy dare to ask his father for his share of the property? It was like wishing his father already died. And when the boy is broke he wants to go back to his father’s house.
