Storyboard Text

  • There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said " Father can I have some of your wealth please?" So the man divided his property between them equally.
  • the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. He bought slaves and women. After all this he had nothing left to spend and became poor
  • He had spent all the money he had and he was poor.The son got a job taking care of pigs. He was so poor and hungry that he wanted to eat the pigs food. He knew that the men that worked for his father always had lots of food to spare. The son decided that he would go back to his father and tell his father that he had sinned against him and that he was sorry and wasn’t worthy to be called his father’s son. "I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants."
  • But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ The father told his slaves to get shoes and the best robes and also prepare a massive feast. They then started celebrating
  • Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father is celebrating. The older brother became angry and refused to go in. The son said ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me anything. But when this son of yours who has ruined everything, returns, you celebrate. "My son,’ the father said, ‘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.
  • The last piece of scripture (to the left) means that this son is always here but the one that has returned wasn't and he could've been dead so they had to celebrate. The moral of this story is those who sin will always be forgiven by God with open arms, but only if you realise the error of your ways which is repent. Christians would tell God their sins and pray to him. They would try to not sin. A modern example would be the confession ceremony where you would go to church and tell a priest your sins and you'll be forgiven by God. A Buddhist teaching that relates to this would be not to spend money on luxuries which is what the son did.
