Abstract

In both Tobit and the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15:11-32 there is featured a father-son relationship that revolves around the extended journey of the son and the son’s return to his father. This paper explores the figure of the traveling son in Tobit in close parallel with that of the traveling son in Luke 15:11-32. The aim is to indicate not solely similarities and contrasts between the two narratives but to show how Tobit might have been used as a source for the Lukan composition.
