The second slave added two more talents (Mt 25:17-25:17)

“In the same way,

The one slave who had

Two talents

Made two more talents.”


ὡσαύτως ὁ τὰ δύο ἐκέρδησεν ἄλλα δύο.


This parable is unique to Matthew, but there is something similar in Luke, chapter 19:12-27.  Jesus said that in the same way (ὡσαύτως) as the slave with 5 talents, the slave who had 2 talents (ὁ τὰ δύο) made, gained or acquired 2 two more talents.  Thus, he doubled the value of his 2 talents from $4,000,000 US to $8,000,000 US.
