Slide 1

Jesus told this parable to help people understand the kingdom of heaven. A rich man was going on a long journey and entrusted his servants to manage his money while he was away. – Slide 1

Slide 2

To the first servant he gave five talents to manage. A talent was a lot of money, worth around a million dollars today. – Slide 2

Slide 3

A second servant was given responsibility for two of his master’s talents. – Slide 3

Slide 4

And a third servant was given one talent. – Slide 4

Slide 5

Immediately, the first servant began to trade his master’s money wisely. – Slide 5

Slide 6

He invested it well and over time doubled the amount. – Slide 6

Slide 7

The second servant did the same, finding ways to increase the talents he held. He also doubled his investments. – Slide 7

Slide 8

But the third servant went and dug a hole in the ground. – Slide 8

He then buried the talent he had. – Slide 9

Slide 10

After a long time the master returned from his journey and called his servants to settle their accounts. – Slide 10

Slide 11

The first gathered the five talents he had been given along with another five he had made. – Slide 11

Slide 12

‘Master, you delivered to me five talents and I have made five talents more,’ he declared. His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little so I will put you in charge of much. Enjoy the new responsibilities I am giving you.’ – Slide 12

Slide 13

The second servant then declared, ‘Master, you gave me two talents and I have made two more.’ His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little so I will put you in charge of much. Enjoy the new responsibilities I am giving you.’ – Slide 13

Slide 14

The third servant went and dug up the talent he had hidden. He explained, ‘Master, I knew you would demand any profit I had made. I was afraid, so I hid your talent in the ground. Here it is.’ – Slide 14

Slide 15

‘You wicked lazy servant!’ his master cried. ‘Since you knew I would demand your profit, you should at least have put my money into the bank so I could have earned some interest. – Slide 15

Slide 16

The master took the talent from this man and give it to the man who had ten talents. ‘The servant who invested his master’s talent well will be trusted with more more,’ he announced. – Slide 16

Slide 17

‘But the man who is unfaithful, shall have what little responsibility he has taken from him.’ The master then ordered that the unfaithful servant be thrown out. – Slide 17
