Parable of the Ten Minas

(Mat 25:14–30 )

Now while they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem and they thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:19 - “And he said to him also, ‘And you are to be over five cities.’
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:20 - “And then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I kept tucked away in a handkerchief;
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:21 - for I was afraid of you, because you are a demanding man; you take up what you did not lay down, and reap what you did not sow.’
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:22 - “He *said to him, ‘[fn]From your own lips I will judge you, you worthless slave. Did you know that I am a demanding man, taking up what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow?
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:23 - ‘And so why did you not put my money in the bank, and when I came back, I would have collected it with interest?’
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:24 - “And then he said to the other slaves who were present, ‘Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has the ten minas.’
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:25 - “And they said to him, ‘Master, he already has ten minas.’
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 19:26 - ‘I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away.
