The Parable of the Bag of Gold

The Gospel Coalition 2012 Michigan Regional Conference


In this 50-minute session, Don Carson, world-renowned New Testament scholar and author, and Research Professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, argues that the parable of the talents describes to believers how to live while we wait for Jesus to return.
