13 "And he called ten of his slaves , and gave them ten minas and said to them, 'Do business with this until e I come back.'

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Luke 19:13

Commentary on Luke 19:11-27

(Read Luke 19:11-27)

This parable is like that of the talents, 1 Peter 4:10. The account required, resembles that in the parable of the talents; and the punishment of the avowed enemies of Christ, as well as of false professors, is shown. The principal difference is, that the pound given to each seems to point out the gift of the gospel, which is the same to all who hear it; but the talents, distributed more or less, seem to mean that God gives different capacities and advantages to men, by which this one gift of the gospel may be differently improved.
