This week, the Gospel message brings us two stories of Jesus told to help explain the message of the Gospel. Many did not like the idea of Jesus eating with Tax collectors and sinners, so Luke 15 contains 3 stories, with the added Prodigal Son parable, of Jesus answering this concern, explaining God's wish that sinners repent, and not simply be walled off.
Video quality is unfortunately low again as some Spanish company is claiming ownership of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, which prevented my downloading in a higher quality.
