The Parables: The Unmerciful Servant and the Human Vocation

Matthew 18v21-35

Matt Deisen | June 25, 2017 | Duration: 49 minutes


As Jesus teaches his disciples about their joint lives together in the new community that is being formed through him, Peter raises a pressing question: How many times should we forgive a brother or sister who sins against us? Jesus answers Peter with a parable about accounting, and in doing so reveals something profound about the importance of forgiveness and the human vocation as God’s image bearers.
