THE BIBLE'S STORY & THE PARABLE THE VISITING SON
Junior comes from out of town to visit his father (John 1:29) (Matthew 5:17), only to discover his pop surrounded by police, businessmen, and lawyers (Ephesians 6:12).

"What’s going on?” Junior demands.
"They're taking my home." His father says reluctantly (John 10:10).
"Give ME the debt!” The son yells toward the just-business environment (Isaiah 53:3).
The nosy crowd is astonished, including the father.
"But," the banker replies, "this is not your problem!” (John 18:35)

The son stands his ground until the banker finally gives in (Luke 22:42). And, with the bill now in junior's name, the son simply reaches in his pocket and pays it off, cash (Isaiah 53:10). And immediately after, many witness the banker and the son wink at each other. To this day, spectators wonder, "Did the banker secretly arrange for this well-timed rescue?" (I John 1:21) (Psalm 22:30).
