In Jesus' parable of the Prodigal Son, a forgiving father seeks to restore both of his sons.  The younger son demands his share of the inheritance then squanders it on wild living.  In desperation, the son returns to seek a servant position with his father, but the father restores him to full status as son and celebrates.  When the older son becomes indignant, the father seeks to restore him as well.  Requires 5 actors including a narrator.  Takes about 5 minutes.  If you decide to order this skit, an email will be sent to you with a download link.
