"The Talents" Matthew 25:14-30 (Matthew: The Parables of the King)

In many ways, the Parable of the Talents is "Part 2" and further elaboration on the Parable of the 10 Virgins that precedes it. As Jesus ends the first parable with the words- "Watch therefore, for you neither know the day nor the hour" - the next section helps elaborate the agenda of our watching and waiting. What is required to hear "Well done, good and faithful servant?" In this captivating story of stewards being given 1, 2 and 5 talents, Jesus reveals the most important dimensions of our life in between His comings.
