NET © Notes

sn Note the younger son is not “my brother” but this son of yours (an expression with a distinctly pejorative nuance).

sn This is another graphic description. The younger son’s consumption had been like a glutton. He had both figuratively and literally devoured the assets which were given to him.

sn The charge concerning the prostitutes is unproven, but essentially the older brother accuses the father of committing an injustice by rewarding his younger son’s unrighteous behavior.

sn See note on the phrase “fattened calf” in v. 23.
