  • Current Study: “The Prodigal Son” / by John MacArthur
    • Two thousand years ago, Jesus told a simple story about a father and his two sons. This tale stands out because it is a story about each of us and our struggle with sin. Whether we identify with the rebellion of the younger son or the self-righteousness of the older brother, we all are in need of our Father’s grace, mercy, and forgiveness. Author John MacArthur provides fascinating new insights into this parable as he takes you step-by-step through each part of the tale. You will explore not only the shocking actions of the younger son in his rebellion but also the cold-hearted attitude of the older brother toward his family. You will find a reflection of yourself in each of these two sons—and come to understand, in a fresh and new way, what God does to find you where you are and bring you back to Him.
