    Scripture Reflections

    The parable of the two sons was addressed to the chief priests and elders of the people. Its purpose was to defend Jesus’ invitation of sinners and outcasts to the Kingdom, in the face of the sneers of the religious establishment. The parable outraged the religious people.

    The first son represents sinners. Like him they originally chose to go their own way but then repented and took God’s way, and so gained entry into the Kingdom. The second son represents the chief priests and elders. Like him they promised to work for God but failed to do so, and so have excluded themselves from the Kingdom. Repentance is a necessary disposition for entry into the Kingdom. The theme of son and repentance is also dealt with in the First Reading.

    The parable also echoes a favorite theme of Matthew: the split in the religious person between saying and doing. Hence, its relevance for ‘religious’ people in every age.
