Runtime of this lesson: 32:00 minutesPart of Volume 132015


Throughout His ministry, Jesus' compassion for sinners and those considered unclean raised the eyebrows of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law. God's word warned His people not to touch any unclean thing, and they could not understand why Jesus chose to keep such company. In classic Jesus-fashion, He addressed their concerns with a story, a three-part parable about a lost sheep, a lost coin, and a lost son. In this lesson, join Jesus' audience and hear for yourself what He has to say about seeking the lost.
