Luke 15:11-32

The Prodigal Son

Then Yeshua said, “A man had two sons. The younger son said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the property.’ So the father divided his property between his two sons.

“After a few days, the younger son gathered his possessions and left for a country far away from home. There he wasted everything he had on a wild lifestyle. He had nothing left when a severe famine spread throughout that country. He had nothing to live on. So he got a job from someone in that country and was sent to feed pigs in the fields. No one in the country would give him any food, and he was so hungry that he would have eaten what the pigs were eating.

“Finally, he came to his senses. He said, ‘How many of my father’s hired men have more food than they can eat, while I’m starving to death here? I’ll go at once to my father, and I’ll say to him, “Father, I’ve sinned against heaven and you. I don’t deserve to be called your son anymore. Make me one of your hired men.” ’

“So he went at once to his father. While he was still at a distance, his father saw him and felt sorry for him. He ran to his son, put his arms around him, and kissed him.Then his son said to him, ‘Father, I’ve sinned against heaven and you. I don’t deserve to be called your son anymore.’a

“The father said to his servants, ‘Hurry! Bring out the best robe, and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let’s celebrate with a feast. My son was dead and has come back to life. He was lost but has been found.’ Then they began to celebrate.

“His older son was in the field. As he was coming back to the house, he heard music and dancing. He called to one of the servants and asked what was happening.

“The servant told him, ‘Your brother has come home. So your father has killed the fattened calf to celebrate your brother’s safe return.’

“Then the older son became angry and wouldn’t go into the house. His father came out and begged him to come in. But he answered his father, ‘All these years I’ve worked like a slave for you. I’ve never disobeyed one of your commands. Yet, you’ve never given me so much as a little goat for a celebration with my friends. But this son of yours spent your money on prostitutes, and when he came home, you killed the fattened calf for him.’

“His father said to him, ‘My child, you’re always with me. Everything I have is yours.But we have something to celebrate, something to be happy about. This brother of yours was dead but has come back to life. He was lost but has been found.’”

SPIRITUAL MEANING

Question: what is the metaphysical meaning of the prodigal son?

Answer: Begin all Thinking and Action with the Name of The Most High

Because this class is made up of a general audience I will use general terms and not Kemetic terms.

The “two sons” of Luke 15:11 are symbolic of two of the three departments of the soul or consciousness. The son who stayed at home is the religious or moral nature (one who stays close to the Father); the son who went into the far country is the human phase of the soul, in which are the appetites and desires.

Question: can you explain what is meant by far country?

Answer: yes, far country is symbolic of a state of consciousness in which man has separated himself from an intimate spiritual association with the Father and thereby does not have the benefit of divine wisdom in his affairs. This is the son (soul) that went into the far country. Going into a “far country” is separating the consciousness from its parent source (The Heavenly Father- The Creator).

Question: how do we return back to the Heavenly Father?

Answer: The first step in complying with the divine law of returning to the Father’s house is repentance and confession.

Confession should be made directly to God, and if we are truly sincere, sorry, and we repent, the Father will forgive us; He will have compassion, and His blessings and bounty will be poured out upon us.

Question: what does the return of the younger son to the Father’s house symbolize in us?

Answer: the return of the younger son is symbolic of the unity between our outer sense, and the inner Spirit, this is returning to the Father’s house. When this reunification takes place there is great rejoicing, and our outer senses are flooded with vitality, symbolic of the robe. “The father said to his servants, ‘Hurry! Bring out the best robe, and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. The Father bestows us with unending power and it is put into his hand (ring), and his understanding (feet) is strengthened. Verse 23 shows the nurturing aspect as El Shaddai, symbolic of the “fatted calf” that is the richness of strength always awaiting the hungry soul.

“His older son was in the field. As he was coming back to the house, he heard music and dancing. He called to one of the servants and asked what was happening.

“The servant told him, ‘Your brother has come home. So your father has killed the fattened calf to celebrate your brother’s safe return.’

“Then the older son became angry and wouldn’t go into the house. His father came out and begged him to come in. But he answered his father, ‘All these years I’ve worked like a slave for you. I’ve never disobeyed one of your commands. Yet, you’ve never given me so much as a little goat for a celebration with my friends. But this son of yours spent your money on prostitutes, and when he came home, you killed the fattened calf for him.’

“His father said to him, ‘My child, you’re always with me. Everything I have is yours.But we have something to celebrate, something to be happy about. This brother of yours was dead but has come back to life. He was lost but has been found.’”

Question: the text says there was great rejoicing, who is the rejoicing for metaphysically?

Answer: good question, sometimes the true faithful servants of God feels as if he/she is being taken for granted, because they are constantly doing the will of the Father all the time, while others are not. Not realizing that they are so blessed to always be with the Father, and that everything in the kingdom is theirs. But when all of these relations have been established between the within-Spirit and the without-Sense self, there is great rejoicing. Rejoicing is not for us, the living, faithful children of the Father, but it is for the dead man of sense, our brother who is risen from the dead, and made alive in the consciousness of Spirit–the lost but now found.

Salaam, Shalom, Peace, Hotep
