Reply to "VIDEO/A-V Workshop Lessons & Ideas for Parable of the Talents, Pounds"

The Parables of Jesus (Nest)

Originally submitted by member Neil MacQueen

The Nest video The Parables of Jesus features three of the most famous parables, including Parable of the Talents.

Nest Parables of Jesus also includes: The Rich Man and Lazarus, and the Two Sons (Prodigal Son).  Here are my thoughts on how those parables can be interpreted in light of the teaching of the Talents Parable:

The Rich Man is someone who thought he was RICH, but buried his gifts by hoarding his money and not living a righteous life. Lazarus has the gift of faith and is rewarded.

What is the Prodigal's Gift?  The love of his father, the ability to confess.

What is the Older Son's BURIED gift?  He buried his forgiveness under judgment and anger. 

What is the Father's Gift?  Patience, generosity, forgiveness.
