Luke 15:24

And is alive (kai anezhsen). First aorist active indicative of anazaw, to live again. Literally, he was dead and he came back to life. He was lost (hn apolwlw, periphrastic past perfect active of apollumi and intransitive, in a lost state) and he was found (eureqh). He was found, we have to say, but this aorist passive is really timeless, he is found after long waiting (effective aorist) The artists have vied with each other in picturing various items connected with this wonderful parable.
