Jesus’ parable of the two brothers,
(often called the Prodigal Son) is full of
references to the Genesis stories of Jacob
and Esau and Joseph and his brothers.
Jesus’ handling of these tales and especially
the parable’s extraordinary punch line raises
very radical questions about any notions
of the people of God.
