Had random people only questioned the teachings of Jesus is a minuet conflict The real dilemma arises when the ones that are questioning Jesus teachings are his own disciples Ones that have been with him and believed in everything related to him from the beginning As time passed various groups of people came to engage in Jesus ministry of the words of God Once the Pharisees noticed the kind of people participating in the crowd they showed strong rebuttal towards the situation by stating This fellowwelcomes sinners and eats with themLuke 152 For the Pharisees it was absurd how a son of God and of such holy status can be associating with them In order for the people to understand Jesus he told them the parable of the prodigal boy This parable is split into two separate parts The first part of the parable is focused on the younger rebellious son who represents the sinners and the tax-collectors The second part of the parable focuses on the way the older brother reacts with jealousy when he comes home from working on the farm to find a celebration This represents the Pharisees reaction of Jesus being with sinners In this parable Jesus shows that even though these people performed sins in their past that there is still joy among the angels of God Luke 159 when they repent In this parable the father takes the role of God from his response to the situation Since the father had an unbreakable love for his child even though his son had betrayed him he had it in his heart to forgive his son This exemplifies that God loves all of his people even if they have done wrong as long as they turn to him with sincerity and repent After committing sin the prodigal son could not return into a complete state of innocence God does not use his powers to erase a mistake when you come
