Luk 15:19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
Luk 15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
ME: here the word "he arose' is anistemi" referring to the being "raised from the dead";
"being a great way off' shows us that even while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us; it wasn't a physical proximity but "time" where he was "far" off:
his father saw him, had compassion, ran, fell on his neck, and kissed him:
the phrase "fall on his neck" is where we see the "DEATH of the ego" so we can RECEIVE the KISS to bring us back to life; Hence it is written "kiss the Son" lest you be destroyed while his wrath is KINDLED a little while:

there are many other verses where this phrase has to do with "death" and the death it has to do with is the EGO or the death of the "first born" as the Egptians death of the first born refers to this death:

ME: GOD Doesn't just leave us dead in our IDENTITY: he gives us a NEW IDENTITY, a NEW CREATION: we don't just return to being 'spirits' that are no longer lost and dead, but we get a NEW EGO so to speak called the soul or body of the spirit: We get a NEW HEAD and this is the "MAN" God made out of himself, his HOLY SPIRIT and his creation that he made WOMAN for this event to bring forth the "First fruits" of all creation, Christ, that becomes MAN in Gods image and likeness and his name is JESUS, which means "the salvation of Jehovah".
Luk 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put [it] on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on [his] feet:
Luk 15:23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill [it]; and let us eat, and be merry:
Luk 15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
