THE PARABLES OF THE SECOND COMING
In the last two lessons, we studied the Parable of the Talents and the Parable of Ten Virgins. These two parables are found in Matthew 25, from v. 1 to v. 30, and they share the common theme of the Second Coming of Christ. At the end of Matthew 24, we find another parable which is also concerned with the Second Coming of Christ. It is the Parable of the Faithful and Unfaithful Servants in Matthew 24:45-51. So these three parables, the Parable of the Talents, the Parable of the Ten Virgins and the Parable of the Faithful and Unfaithful Servants, have one subject in common: the return of Christ. But they have more in common than that, and in this lesson, I would like to highlight seven points that these parables share together.
