lesson 35, English

warning: Contains a spoiler of Hans Brinker.

Hans Brinker‘s story of Lambert being lost and the Bible‘s The Parable of the Lost Son are 2 similar stories .

Before I begin, I will sum up both stories. The one about Lambert is where Lambert thinks he has committd a crime. He gives his watch to Raff Brinker (Hans’ dad). He tells their mother to take care of the watch. Soon after (before he can tell what the watch means) he has his accident where he becomes almost incapable of thinking. Hans gets dr. Bokeman (a very well known doctor) to help him preform the surgery. This surgery is performed and Raff tells of the watch. They figure out via doctor Bokeman that L.J.B (the name on the watch) stands for Bokeman’s son. Raff remember that the name he was supposed to send it to was “Thomas Higgs”… but not the place. They found out on the case that Peter brought because of Gretel wining a race where she took the prize without the case (conveniently comes in time for the plot) that says it was made by “Thomas Higgs” in Birmingham, England. From that point Lambert comes back and Hans becomes a surgeon in the place of Lambert. The story of the Prodigal son is where a man has 2 sons and one of his Sons asks if he can have his father’s part of the estate. His father agrees. He goes of and wastes it all and then, because he was kind of being a slacker, then, a famine hit the land and he was very hungry but no one would give him anything. He went back to his father and his father rejoiced. His father kills the fattened calf, and celebrates. The older brother is angry saying, “Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!”1 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.'”1

Lambert and the First Son (the son who had left his father) both left their father. The difference about that was that Lambert wasn’t doing it for his “love of adventure” as dr. Bokeman thought; instead, he went because he thought he was a criminal and would get persecuted. The Son was just bored with his life and just wanted to leave. Lambert was not abandoning his father because of a “love of adventure”, but the Son was.

After we decide the difference between why they left, I will discuses what happened when they were gone. While Lambert was gone, he was successful in his career. He was a man who made skates. The Son, however, was pretty wasteful and lazy. As the Bible says it, “[He] set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living.”1 Because the Son was wasteful, he ended up in a mess where he couldn’t feed himself. Lambert was productive and had a very wealthy life. That is a difference about them I pointed out.

How and why they came back is a totally different story. In a sense, Lambert wanted to come back. The Son, was really forced into coming back. He didn’t have much of a choice. Lambert was received by his father warmly. The Son also was received warm welcomes. The son had a celebration allotted to him. I’m not sure that the son really wanted to come back at first but new it was necessary.2 Lambert didn’t have a party allotted to him, but he was kind of glad to come back.

That is it for today’s essay; I hope you enjoyed! Bye!

2 I’m not sure if the son wanted to come home or even wanted to stay, but judging by the context of the story, he at least wanted to stay.
