This is once again, unique to Luke. He indicated that Jesus said that the one slave who did not know (ὁ δὲ μὴ γνοὺς) the will of his master, yet did the bad things that were worthy of punishment (ποιήσας δὲ ἄξια πληγῶν), also deserved a light beating (δαρήσεται ὀλίγας). Everyone to whom much is given (παντὶ δὲ ᾧ ἐδόθη πολύ), much will be required (πολὺ ζητηθήσεται παρ’ αὐτοῦ). The one to whom much has been entrusted (καὶ ᾧ παρέθεντο πολύ), even more will be demanded (περισσότερον αἰτήσουσιν αὐτόν). Jesus made a distinction between those who knew the will of the master or lord and still disobeyed him, and those who did not know the will of the master but acted badly. The latter would not be punished as much as those that knew what they should have been doing. Those who have much, even much more would be required or demanded. Do you live up to your responsibilities?
Luke finished his unique narrative about Joseph, Mary, and Jesus at the presentation ritual of Mary in Jerusalem. He said that after they had finished everything (Καὶ ὡς ἐτέλεσαν πάντα) that was required by the Law of the Lord (ὰ κατὰ τὸν νόμον Κυρίου), they returned to Galilee (ἐπέστρεψαν εἰς τὴν Γαλιλαίαν), to their own town of Nazareth (εἰς πόλιν ἑαυτῶν Ναζαρέθ), about 80 miles away. Mary and Joseph had done everything according to the Israelite law, but there was no mention of a marriage ceremony, just these Temple activities. They were faithful Israelite followers of the Torah.
Yahweh, via Micah, once again showed the relationship between worship and justice. Much like the written prophets, Amos, chapter 5, Hosea, chapter 2, and Isaiah, chapters 7 and 30, the emphasis was on justice over sacrificial gifts. Micah asked what kind of gifts he should bring to Yahweh, the high God. Would Yahweh be happy with burnt offerings of one-year old calves? Would 1,000 rams please him? Would 10,000 rivers of oil be enough for Yahweh? Should he offer up his firstborn son to save his soul? Micah pointed out what Yahweh required. Yahweh wanted them to do justice and love kindness. Very simply, they were to walk humbly with their God, Yahweh.
It was very clear that Yahweh wanted all the people of Israel to worship him on the holy high mountain and no place else. This holy mountain was the only place where they could serve him. Yahweh would accept their contributions only there. In fact, he required their choicest gifts and sacred items. Yahweh was precise. He was against all the other high places in Israel and Judah. The holy sacred mountain was the only place for sacrifices.
