  27. 27. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>4 &quot;Which one of you, if he has a hundred sheep and loses one of them, would not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go look for the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 Then when he has found it, he places it on his shoulders, rejoicing. </li></ul>
  28. 28. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>6 Returning home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, telling them, 'Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost.' 7 I tell you, in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need to repent. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>8 &quot;Or what woman, if she has ten silver coins and loses one of them, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search thoroughly until she finds it? 9 Then when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.' </li></ul>
  30. 30. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>10 In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God's angels over one sinner who repents.&quot; 11 Then Jesus said, &quot;A man had two sons. 12 The younger of them said to his father, 'Father, give me the share of the estate that will belong to me.'so he divided his assets between them. </li></ul>
  31. 31. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>13 After a few days, the younger son gathered together all he had and left on a journey to a distant country, and there he squandered his wealth with a wild lifestyle. 14 Then after he had spent everything, a severe famine took place in that country, and he began to be in need. </li></ul>
  32. 32. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>15 So he went and worked for one of the citizens of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He was longing to eat the carob pods the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. </li></ul>
  33. 33. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>17 But when he came to his senses he said, 'How many of my father's hired workers have food enough to spare, but here I am dying from hunger! 18 I will get up and go to my father and say to him, &quot;Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. </li></ul>
  34. 34. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me like one of your hired workers.&quot; ' 20 So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way from home his father saw him, and his heart went out to him; he ran and hugged his son and kissed him. </li></ul>
  35. 35. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>21 Then his son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' 22 But the father said to his slaves, 'Hurry! Bring the best robe, and put it on him! Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet! </li></ul>
  36. 36. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it! Let us eat and celebrate, 24 because this son of mine was dead, and is alive again he was lost and is found!' So they began to celebrate. </li></ul>
  37. 37. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>25 &quot;Now his older son was in the field. As he came and approached the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the slaves and asked what was happening. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>27 The slave replied, 'Your brother has returned, and your father has killed the fattened calf because he got his son back safe and sound.' </li></ul>
  39. 39. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>28 But the older son became angry and refused to go in. His father came out and appealed to him, 29 but he answered his father, 'Look! These many years I have worked like a slave for you, and I never disobeyed your commands. </li></ul>
  40. 40. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>Yet you never gave me even a goat so that I could celebrate with my friends! 30 But when this son of yours came back, who has devoured your assets with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him!' </li></ul>
  41. 41. Repentance is seen in Jesus parable of the Prodigal Son <ul><li>31 Then the father said to him, 'Son, you are always with me, and everything that belongs to me is yours. 32 It was appropriate to celebrate and be glad, for your brother was dead, and is alive; he was lost and is found.' &quot; </li></ul>
  42. 42. The Message in the Life of Christ <ul><li>Confess </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Matthew 10:32,33 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>John 12:42,43 </li></ul></ul>
  43. 43. The Message in the Life of Christ <ul><li>Confess </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Matthew 10:32 NET &quot;Whoever, then, acknowledges me before people, I will acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever denies me before people, I will deny him also before my Father in heaven. </li></ul></ul>
  44. 44. <ul><li>John 12:42 NET Nevertheless, even among the rulers many believed in him, but because of the Pharisees they would not confess Jesus to be the Christ, so that they would not be put out of the synagogue. 43 For they loved praise from men more than praise from God. </li></ul>
  45. 45. The Message in the Life of Christ <ul><li>Baptism </li></ul><ul><ul><li>John 3:3,5 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>John 3:23 </li></ul></ul>
  46. 46. The Message in the Life of Christ <ul><li>Baptism </li></ul><ul><ul><li>John 3:3 NET Jesus replied, &quot;I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God.&quot; 4 Nicodemus said to him, &quot;How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter his mother's womb and be born a second time, can he?&quot; </li></ul></ul>
  47. 47. <ul><ul><li>5 Jesus answered, &quot;I tell you the solemn truth, unless a person is born of water and spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. </li></ul></ul>
  48. 48. <ul><li>John 3:23 NET John was also baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and people were coming to him and being baptized. </li></ul>
