“A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return. And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas and said to them, ‘Do business with this until I come back.’” (Luke 19: 12-13)
“For it is just like a man about to go on a journey, who called his own slaves and entrusted his possessions to them. To one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey.” (Matthew 25: 14-15)
While similar in theme and structure, the parable of the minas and the parable of the talents teach different lessons. In this 20-Minute Bible Study, we examine both in close detail.
