How long was the Prodigal Son gone for?

The Prodigal Son, away for many years?

Thanks for asking a question on thisisyourbible.com

The parable of the prodigal son is found in Luke 15:11-32.The bottom line is that we are not told how long he was away. However, from verse 29, we may infer that he was gone for "many years."

I hope you have found this helpful.

God bless you,
