18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinnedagainstheaven, and before thee,
19 And am nomore worthy to be called thy son: makeme as one of thy hired servants. [kjv]

[NLTSBN] 15:11-32 Like the previous two parables (15:3-7,8-10), the parable of the lost son demonstrates God’s love for the lost and the joy he experiences when they return. It also allegorizes Jesus’ ministry. The father represents God, the younger brother represents the tax collectors and sinners to whom Jesus ministered, and the older brother represents the religious leaders.

The Beatitudes Matt. 5:1-12 [5:3] “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
3¶ And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?
4If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
I have **Luke 18:13 9And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
10Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
12I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
13And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
