The Parable of the Talents

Download Content

In this parable Jesus speaks about a rich man going away and leaving his servants in charge of his money. What will the servants do? Will they try to invest or will they just hide it under their bed?

Christians believe that, like the servants in this story, we have all been given gifts. Like the servants, we too can decide whether we use them or not. But what happens when we make those choices? Watch the film to find out.

Based on Matthew 25:14-30.

This film was created as part of the Lenten 40 Acts Together series. Click here to view free lessons and collective worship material exploring generosity throughout Lent.
