|The Great Gospel of John|
(Lk. 15:11) And he said, A certain man had two sons;
(Lk. 15:12) and the younger of them said to his father, Father, give to me the share of the property that falls [to me]. And he divided to them what he was possessed of.
[6.242.5] And listen further to a still very meaningful parable! There was a very respectable and very, very rich person who had two sons. And the youngest son went to the father and said to him: 'Give me the share or the value of my goods which is my inheritance; because I want to move away and make my fortune in the world!' And the father divided the goods of the sons and gave to the younger his share.
(Lk. 15:13) And after not many days the younger son gathering all together went away into a country a long way off, and there dissipated his property, living in debauchery.
(Lk. 15:14) But when he had spent all there arose a violent famine throughout that country, and he began to be in want.
(Lk. 15:15) And he went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
(Lk. 15:16) And he longed to fill his belly with the husks which the swine were eating; and no one gave to him.
[6.242.6] And soon afterwards the younger gathered all his belongings and moved far away from country to country. And when he found a place which his senses liked, he squandered his money. And when soon he used up all his possessions, the country was struck by high inflation and he started to suffer. Thereupon he went to a citizen of the same country who send him into the field to look after his swine. When looking after the swine for a few days, he became very hungry and he desired to fill his stomach with the draff which the swine used to eat, but nobody gave it to him.
