15 And it came to passe, that when he was returned, hauing receiued the kingdome, then hee commaunded these seruants to be called vnto him, to whom he had giuen the money, that hee might know how much euery man had gained by trading.
37 And when he was come nigh euen now at the descent of the mount of Oliues, the whole multitude of the disciples began to reioyce and praise God with a loud voice, for all the mighty workes that they had seene,

The parable of the pounds:
1. Parables are used by Jesus as an object lesson using a physical to help Christians understand spiritual;
2. Here are some clues to help in interpretation of this parable;
3. The number 10 is the number of the gentiles;
4. Pounds are England’s monetary unit;
5. Monies are spiritual gifts given by the holy spirit at the time of salvation (1 Corinthians 12:4-11);
6. The nobleman is the lord Jesus Christ;
7. The far country is the world;
8. The kingdom is the kingdom of God (church age);
9. The servants are the born again saints that have been given spiritual gifts to use in the church age;
10. The usury are rewards earned by the Christians that put their spiritual gifts into action (James 1:22-25, 2 John 8);
11. The return of the nobleman in verse 15 is the rapture of the church and the Christians will stand before Jesus to give an account at judgment seat of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:10 and Romans 14:10) of their faithful works in the kingdom of God, according to their obedience to the holy scriptures (1 Corinthians 3:11-15);
12. The judgment seat of Christ takes place during the tribulation period while the wrath of God is being poured out upon earth found in the book of Revelation chapters 4 to 19.

In relation to verse 2, I am concerned at the use of the word “which”; it would have been preferable if the translator had used the word “who”.

My mother said: "You are tall enough in God's eyes if your feet reach the ground!" She also said that "Zacchaeus" was a hard name to spell. I think she was right in both cases.

The debate seems to be about usury. Why Jesus would mention something with favor that the Bible speaks against. But if we take a deeper look, we understand it is not the usury, but the greed that motivated usury. In the case Jesus spake of, we find it was not greed, but respect of the Nobleman that would have motivated the servant to the act of usury. I myself think that all usury is not wrong, only that which is deceitful, begotten by extortion. One more thought, if usury is wrong, and both parties make an agreement that involves usury, then both are guilty, the lender, and the borrower. So in closing, I feel that as the secrets of the heart are known of God, the reason you lend for usury must be taken into consideration when judgment is passed. Let God do the judging, and let Him teach each individual. Another question I might ask, We know that in Business usury is a part of the gain. So is all Businesses wrong? Thanks for hearing me out. I'll close this book, and maybe the thoughts will help someone sort out their thoughts. God Bless us all with His understanding on this subject. Pastor Gerald

i think that this chapter teaches about recieving and giving. You can't take what God has given you and hide it . If you share and work with what he has given you your blessings will be multiplied. Don't ever think that you don't have enough to share because little becomes much when you place it in his hands(in other words when you share,what have you will see the hand of God work in your life.When Zaccheus became enlighten he was willing to give back that which he had taken falsly,not only give back but multiply tahat which he had taken wrongfully.

We should know that God did not come for righteous one but he came to save that was lost.
The Word's Luke Chapter 19 comment about verse 23 on 5/09/2010, 2:05am...
Many have assumed this parable to mean usury and banking are biblical, but they are not. This is why he spoke in parables, to separate the wheat from the chaff.He is speaking so the unlearned can relate in their world. For the word says you cannot serve God and Money, for you will hate one and love the other. This verse is a confirmation of God's kindom and the kingdom of the world. The world requires usury, but not God.
Anonymous's Luke Chapter 19 comment about verse 13 on 1/15/2010, 1:46pm...
This verse of the parable teaches us that we must strengthen and multiply the grace we have been given so that we may be saved and help save others from eternal death when Our lord comes. Jesus has paid a price for us ( his saints) and has taken us out of the world of sin and we must stay where he has placed us ( in his Grace) busying ourselves with the affairs of our salvation.
