The Parable of the talents or minas, (also known as the Parable of Talents or The Parable of the Pounds), is one of the well known parables of Jesus. It appears in two of the Canonical gospels of the New Testament, and a variant is also found in the noncanonical Gospel of the Hebrews. The differences between Matthew25:14-30 and the Luke 19:12-27 are substantial, and the two parables may not be derived from the same source. In Matthew, the opening words appear to link the parable to the preceding parable of the Ten Virgins, a parable about the Kingdom of Heaven.
