wiki : Parable of the Prodigal Son

The Prodigal Son, also known as the Lost Son, is one of the parables of Jesus. It appears in only one of the Canonical gospels of the New Testament. According to the Gospel of Luke (Luke 15:11-32) a younger son is given his inheritance. After wasting his fortune (the word 'prodigal' means 'wastefully extravagant'), the son returns home and repents. It is the third and final member of a trilogy on redemption, following the Parable of the Lost Sheep and the Parable of the Lost Coin.
