This study shows how the parable gathers major Lukan themes into one story. The themes that emerge from this parable are: the conflict, salvation through repentance and the forgiveness of sins, God's fatherhood, mercy, and love, table fellowship, reversal, the proper use of wealth and possessions, and joy. The reader hears the parable at a structurally important point within the travel narrative and the larger narrative of the Gospel. The parable recapitulates and reviews these Lukan themes of the antecedent narrative and previews the development of these themes in the subsequent narrative. Thereby, it occupies an important position in Luke's narrative and fits tightly into the overall plot of his Gospel.
