    Sure... right here.

    Let's look at the parable.

    Luke 15:11 ¶And He said, "A certain man had two sons;
    12 and the younger of them said to his father, `Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.´ And he divided his wealth between them.
    13 "And not many days later, the younger son gathered everything together and went on a journey into a distant country, and there he squandered his estate with loose living.
    14 "Now when he had spent everything, a severe famine occurred in that country, and he began to be in need.
    15 "And he went and attached himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
    16 "And he was longing to fill his stomach with the pods that the swine were eating, and no one was giving anything to him.
    17 "But when he came to his senses, he said, `How many of my father's hired men have more than enough bread, but I am dying here with hunger!
    18 `I will get up and go to my father, and will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight;
    19 "I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me as one of your hired men."´
    20 "And he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him, and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him, and kissed him.
    21 "And the son said to him, `Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.´
    22 "But the father said to his slaves, `Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet;
    23 and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and be merry;
    24 for this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.´ And they began to be merry.
    25 "Now his older son was in the field, and when he came and approached the house, he heard music and dancing.
    26 "And he summoned one of the servants and began inquiring what these things might be.
    27 "And he said to him, `Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf, because he has received him back safe and sound.´
    28 "But he became angry, and was not willing to go in; and his father came out and began entreating him.
    29 "But he answered and said to his father, `Look! For so many years I have been serving you, and I have never neglected a command of yours; and yet you have never given me a kid, that I might be merry with my friends;
    30 but when this son of yours came, who has devoured your wealth with harlots, you killed the fattened calf for him.´
    31 "And he said to him, `My child, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours.
    32 `But we had to be merry and rejoice, for this brother of yours was dead and has begun to live, and was lost and has been found.´"

                notes from Strand Study Bible on Luke 15

                15:11 In the two previous parables CHRIST explained how the Pharisees should act when lost sinners are found. In this parable He explains how they did act. They resented CHRIST’S inclusion of those they rejected.
                Parable #26 is aimed at unbelievers who resent the way God saves.The character flaw –assuming their sin is less sinful than those they resent. It is not (Lk 13:1-5).
                15:14 The pleasures of sin are but for a season (Heb 11:25), and are always followed by famine.
                15:19 The prodigal son’s petition (make me) indicated a complete change of mind. When the prodigal son left home, he said, “Give me…” (vs. 12). After truly repenting, he said, “make me.” Whereas he left with a selfish demand, he returned with a subservient desire. He had experienced true repentance.
                15:29 The elder son here pictured the Pharisees, who may have been morally straight, but were self-righteous and more willing to dwell on their brother’s sin than their own (Lk 18:10-12 and Mt 7:21-23).
