YouTube User - InHISWord2 Put up this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arvUIiAex6g of the Parable of the Talents. (Please fill free to visit her channel, she does a great job.) Below is Robert Ferrell’s comment.
I think that this parable might have an even more specific meaning. I'm not sure, but the way I see it is that there are three testaments, & that the one with the three encompasses the one with the 2... In other words, those who understand from the 2 why there are to be 3 have both an understanding of the Judeo-Christian teaching (i.e. the OT + the NT,) as well as the significance of how the one built upon the other leads to the 3rd, meaning that they have both the 2 & the 3, & therefore have 5.
The one with the single testament, (i.e. the False Jews with their 24 books,) knew that Christianity was people reaping what the prophets had sown, or in other words where He had not sown (i.e. among the Gentiles, as well as "Sinners" & "Tax-Collectors," etc.) By burying the talent, or Testament, underneath the Ground, subverting the heavenly meaning by "burying" it under the "ground," or earthly meaning, he prevented the Lord from reaping the harvest He was originally after at the time of Jesus.
That the Elect at the end of time had a mastery over the 2, as well as the 3, they thus received the higher-level meaning, & both dispensations, meaning that their understanding would be comprised of both of the fleshly & the heavenly natures of both sets, which would be 5 twice over, or 10. They who understood the spiritual meaning of the 2 were thus given the extra layer of understanding & thus another understanding of the 2 testaments they then had....
The one with the 1, or the False Jews, had just the one testament with only a single, fleshly understanding, so that they could stand between men & the higher-level meaning of the Jewish Scriptures. They took the key of knowledge & hid it because it spoke of another 2,000 years to come, which they thought was too hard & unfair, so they thus buried the talent, or testament under the ground of earthly terminology....
Now, when the day of reckoning is at hand, they are exposed, thus losing the power they've had by having hidden the Spiritual understanding, making men dependent on them instead of God, thereby denying & blaspheming the Holy Spirit, which is unforgivable, being that they knew the mystery of what God had intended (to reap among a different people than He had sown to originally,) but still hid it. Now he that has the 5 (the 2 + the 3) earned it in a way by exposing the 1st, as you are doing....
So the Elect not only get the 3 testaments for themselves, but also the 2 of the Christians, along with being able to work out the mysteries of both, thereby effectively earning the spiritual dimension of both, exposing the falseness of the False Jews, & receiving as a trophy of sorts the victory over them & their hiding of God's truth.
Great Video Sister! I really hope others come to appreciate you like I do. :)
God Bless You.

Thanks brother Robert, for peeling yet another layer from this onion! I could sense that this parable has even deeper meanings. I very much appreciate your sharing of what the Holy Spirit has taught you!
What a wonderful time to be alive in Jesus!
Jesus is fulfilling this promise as stated in John 16:25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly of the Father.
