Fourth Sunday of Lent: 3/31/2019
Lent 4 Yr C
David in Psalm 32: Happy are they whose transgressions are forgiven.Paul in Cor: “From now on… there is a new creation; everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” Christ offers us new life.Jesus: tells of the disrespectful, arrogant, wayward son who comes home, forgiven.This rich Gospel story is called the parable of the prodigal son; but it has a lot to say about the older son, and certainly about the father. The Pharisees and the teachers of the law were muttering about Jesus, because he welcomed sinners and ate with them. They thought that he was doing a bad job of being a teacher. He was hanging out with the wrong crowd; he was socializing with bad people.
