Storyboard Text

  • There once was a man who had two sons. The younger of the two asked his father for his share of the estates inheritance. So his father gave him the money.
  • Father can I have my share of the money please.
  • The son took the money and travelled to a far away country. Where he was unwise and squandered he wealth in wild living. Until there was a great famine causing him to be in need of food and water.
  • The son had to go and hire himself out to a citizen of the country who made him go out and feed the pigs. All the time he longed to eat the pods which he fed the pigs. Eventually he decided to go home and become one his fathers workers and plead for forgiveness.
  • Before the son had even gotten anywhere near his home, his father saw the son and ran up to him. The father hugged and kissed his son.
  • The son said to his father:" I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. His father ignored him and called for the servants to put the finest robes and sandals on him and a ring on his finger. Also, he ordered that they kill the fattened calf and celebrate. "For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!" the father exclaimed.
  • Out in the fields the older son heard the music and asked a servant what was going on, the servant told him that his brother had returned and his father had killed the fattened calf for him. Soon his father came to plead with him but the son refused. Instead he went on about how he had been slaving in the fields for his father and always followed his orders , yet he was never given even a young goat to kill so he could celebrate with his friends. However when the younger son , who had wasted all of his money, returns the father kills the fattened calf for him. The father replied by saying:
  • My son you are always with me and everything I have is yours, but we had to celebrate and be glad because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.
