What Would Jesus Say About Overtaxing the Rich?

Stephen Nielsen

After writing my last blog post on Overtaxing the Rich, I began thinking about what Jesus would do. So here it is…

In Luke 19:11-26 Jesus teaches His disciples about His kingdom in a parable. As you read the parable, it is not about taxation but more about investing in the kingdom. However, I think we can draw some similar principles. Here is the story:

Luke 19:11-26

While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. 12 He said: “A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return. 13 So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. ‘

Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.’
