The Unexpected God

Passage:Luke 15:1-32

Preacher: Ben Phillips

In Luke 15, the parable of the two sons, aka the parable of the prodigal son, Jesus reveals to us that God does the unexpected, so that in Christ, we are able to do what God expects of us. This parable demonstrates in story form what Paul describes in theological terms in 2 Corinthians 5:21 as to how the gospel works: that for our sake God made him who knew no sin [Jesus] to be sin, so that in him we might be the righteousness of God.
