"the Prodigal Son in his early career"

The parable of the Prodigal Son is one of the best known parables of Jesus. It is found in the Gospel of Luke (15: 11-32) in the New Testament of the Christian Bible.

It tells how a young man descends into poverty after having claimed his share of his father's estate and squandered it; he returns home, begs his father's forgiveness, and is welcomed back into the family fold.
