Welcome to Just Answer. I truly don't know if we have such an expert or not, and surely you aren't interested in paying $10 to learn if we do Smile


If you will state specifically what you are looking for in the Bible so that all experts coming to this forum can see the question, you are more likely to find an answer to whatever passage you are looking for.

I pay an unlimited monthly fee. I am looking for some scripture that talks about God giving someone a talent and them not using it. I found the scripture in Matthew that talks about God giving you a gift and you not using it, but I really wanted to see if I could find something that was truly about a talent, skill, ability, etc.
Expert:  A. Schuyler replied 6 years ago.

In ancient times a talent was a coin roughly equivalent to about 20 years' earnings for a laborer if it were a gold talent (as opposed to silver or other metal that were less valuable). The parable of the talents is in Matthew 25:14-30 and Luke 19:12-28. The word talent is not meant to be taXXXXX XXXXXterally. The parable just means that we should use whatever God has given us and not bury it as the man with one talent did. The King James Bible uses the word talent, but more contemporary translations may use "gift" or "gold." The meaning of the parable is the same, just the words are different.
