The Parable Of The Pounds

Luke 19:11-27

The parable of the pounds is not a repetition of the parable of the talents. The parable of talents suggests the surrender of one's gifts and abilities to further the interests of Him who bestowed them. The parable of the pounds suggests the surrender of ourselves. There is a distinct dispensational flavor to this parable. It anticipates the return of the King. All is seen in the light of that. Jesus is coming again to evaluate how we have lived our lives.

1.  WHAT THE KING EXPLAINED

a.  His future

b.  His friends

c.  His foes

2.  WHAT THE KING EXPECTED

a.  Personal involvement

b.  Personal investment

3.  WHAT THE KING EXPOSED

a.  The significance of faithfulness

b.  The seriousness of failure

NOTE: This parable is told only in Luke's gospel. The incident behind the parable would have been well known to those who first heard it. Herod the Great and his son Archelaus had actually gone from Jericho (where the parable was spoken and where Archelaus had just rebuilt his palace) to Rome to receive the sovereignty. Herod Antipas later did the same thing.
