He will be put in charge of everything (Lk 12:44-12:44)

“Truly!

I say to you!

He will put that one

In charge

Of all his possessions.”

 

ἀληθῶς λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ἐπὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτοῦ καταστήσει αὐτόν.

 

Luke indicated that Jesus gave a solemn declaration (ἀληθῶς λέγω ὑμῖν) that this master would put his good servant in charge (καταστήσει αὐτόν) of all his possessions (ὅτι ἐπὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτοῦ).  There is a similar saying about this parable of the good slave in Matthew, chapter 24:47, almost word for word, indicating a possible Q source.  Matthew indicated that Jesus gave a solemn proclamation (ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν), that this hard-working wise slave would be put in charge of all the master’s possessions (ὅτι ἐπὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτοῦ καταστήσει αὐτόν).  Do a good job and you will get a promotion!  Have you ever been promoted because you did good work?
