The parables of the lost sheep and the lost drachma

Luke 15.1All tax collectors and sinners came to him to hear him.Luke 15.2The Pharisees and the scribes were outraged and said: He associates with sinners and even eats with them.Luke 15.3Then he told them a parable and said:Luke 15.4If one of you has a hundred sheep and you lose one, don't you leave the ninety-nine on the steppes and go after the lost one until you find it?Luke 15.5And when he has found it, he takes it on his shoulders with joy,Luke 15.6and when he comes home he calls his friends and neighbors together and says to them: Rejoice with me; I've found my sheep that was lost.Luke 15.7I tell you, in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over a single sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who do not need to repent.Luke 15.8Or if a woman has ten drachmas and loses one of them, doesn't she light a lamp, sweep the whole house, and search tirelessly until she finds the coin?Luke 15.9And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says: Rejoice with me; I have found the drachma that I lost.Luke 15.10I say to you: Likewise, there is joy among the angels of God over a single sinner who repents..

The parable of the prodigal son

Luke 15.11Jesus also said: A man had two sons.Luke 15.12The younger of them said to his father: Father, give me the inheritance that is due to me. Then the father divided up the property.Luke 15:13After a few days, the younger son packed everything up and moved to a distant country. There he led an unrestrained life and squandered his fortune.Luke 15:14When he was through with everything, there was a great famine in the country and he was very badly off.Lk 15.15So he went to a citizen of the country and forced himself on him; he sent him to the field to tend pigs.Luke 15:16He would have liked to satisfy his hunger with the pods that the pigs ate; but no one gave it to him.Luke 15.17Then he went to himself and said: How many day laborers of my father have more than enough to eat and I am starving here.Lk 15.18I will go and go to my father and say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.Luke 15:19I am no longer worthy of being your son; make me one of your day laborers.Lk 15.20Then he left and went to his father. The father saw him coming from afar and he felt sorry for him. He ran to meet the son, fell on his neck and kissed him.Luke 15.21Then the son said, Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I'm no longer worthy of being your sonLuke 15.22But the father said to his servants: Get the best robe quickly and put it on him, put a ring on his hand and put on his shoes.Luke 15.23Bring the fattened calf and kill it; we want to eat and be happy.Lk 15.24For my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and has been found again. And they began to celebrate a happy feast.Luke 15.25Meanwhile his older son was in the field. When he went home and came near the house, he heard music and dancing.Luke 15.26So he called one of the servants and asked what that meant.Luke 15.27The servant replied: Your brother has come and your father had the fattened calf slaughtered because he got him back whole and healthy.Lk 15.28Then he got angry and didn't want to go inside. But his father came out and talked to him well.Luke 15.29But he replied to his father: I have been serving you for so many years, and never have I acted against your will; But you never gave me a billy goat so that I could have a party with my friends.Luke 15.30But no sooner has he come here, your son, who has made your fortune with prostitutes, than you slaughtered the fattened calf for him.Lk 15.31The father answered him: My child, you are always with me, and everything that is mine is also yours.Lk 15.32But now we have to be happy and have a party; for your brother was dead and is alive again; he was lost and has been found again.
