On Tuesdays, Fr. Paul Tarazi presents an in-depth analysis of the biblical text in the original languages.
The Parable of the Talents is a story about work assignments. How much work can each person do? How will each person—from the least to the greatest—be judged for the results of their work? Everyone is accountable for doing this work. What is the work assignment in Matthew? Obviously (for those who have ears to hear), to do the will of the Father of Jesus. In the Parable of the Talents, to work God’s field with the heavy investment of his ordinances until he returns. Not to bury it, but to work it and expand it to all nations and the four corners of the earth. Richard and Fr. Marc work Matthew 25:16-18.

In today's program, Fr. Paul notes the unmissable parallel between Genesis 22 and 26. As always, it's only unmissable, he explains, when you hear Genesis in the original Hebrew. (Episode 174)
