Bible Commentary for Matthew 25:28

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 25:28


25:26 Thou knewest - That I require impossibilities! This is not an allowing, but a strong denial of the charge.

25:27 Thou oughtest therefore - On that very account, on thy own supposition, to have improved my talent, as far as was possible.

25:29 To every one that hath shall he given - So close does God keep to this stated rule, from the beginning to the end of the world. #Matt 13:12|.

25:30 Cast ye the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness - For what? what had he done? It is true he had not done good. But neither is he charged with doing any harm. Why, for this reason, for barely doing no harm, he is consigned to outer darkness. He is pronounced a wicked, because he was a slothful, an unprofitable servant. So mere harmlessness, on which many build their hope of salvation, was the cause of his damnation! There shall be the weeping - Of the careless thoughtless sinner; and the gnashing of teeth - Of the proud and stubborn. The same great truth, that there is no such thing as negative goodness, is in this chapter shown three times: In the parable of the virgins; In the still plainer parable of the servants, who had received the talents; and In a direct unparabolical declaration of the manner wherein our Lord will proceed at the last day. The several parts of each of these exactly answers each other, only each rises above the preceding.

Because he has shown himself worthy of great trusts.

    Proverbs 17:16 Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it? A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief.
  • Anonymous on Matthew 25:28
    Mt 25 : 28 Take therefore the talent from him and give it to him who has made ten . is very interesting God Almighty gives to each who has accepted Jesus His son the ability to fulfill the calling He has placed in him who he called . To my understanding this talent was what He was best equipped to use to the fullest . How ever instead of been content and thankful for his rich abundant gift he coveted what was given to the others and failed to make use of his wonderful talent.
