The parable of the talents

We told this story as part of a three-part series on the stories that Jesus told.

 Jesus talking to people

The story is accompanied by a series of pictures.  These pictures are optimised for displaying on a projector, but they can also be printed out.

I re-told the story using three characters - Norman, Daniel, William and Jack, and various piles of money.

If you wish to involve the people, you could get people to be the various characters by holding the relevant pictures.

Full details, and full size pictures, are in the following documents:
