How much is a talent worth?
= 3,000 shekels
= 60 minas
= 34.3 kilograms metric
= 75 U.S. pounds
Used as a measure of weight and money. If in today's money an ounce of Gold is worth $700 U.S., one talent is worth $840,000.
Matt. 18:24, 25:15-18
This is probably not comparing apples to apples though since it does not take into account inflationary effects or whether using a talent of gold vs. silver.
Also a talent used in the Hebrew scriptures is different than the ones talked about in the Greek scriptures.

The Talent is an ancient unit of mass equal to 26 kg, as well as a unit of value equal to this amount of pure silver. 1 talent of silver is approximately 57.2 pounds.
$26,662,650 dollars or so. A heavy talent (used in biblical time) weighed about 130 pounds. 130 pounds is about 1895 troy ounces of silver. So 469 talents would be 888755 tr…oy ounces of silver. 888,755 troy ounces times the current silver price of ~$30 per troy ounce would give you $26,662,650!
A standard talent is equal to seventy-five pounds. The price of gold as of September 2014 is approximately $1240 an ounce. There are 12 troy ounces in a pound. That means …a talent of gold would be worth $1,116,000 (one million, one hundred sixteen thousand dollars US). Now simply find the price of gold today and multiply it by the 75 pounds and then by 12 (for troy ounces per pound) to get a current answer.
This answer depends on the current gold price and also the purity of the gold. If this question comes from the 420 talents of gold that Hiram's ships brought back to king Solo…mon in Ophir then it seems unlikely that they would have been able to get very high quality gold at that time so the figure quoted here might be a bit high. The calculations are: 1 talent = 1093.75 troy ounces 1 troy ounce of gold =~ $1241.34 1 talent of gold =~ $1,357,715 420 talents of gold =~ $570,240,562
10,000 talents is worth about 150,000 year's wages. Here's the calculation: 1 talent = 60 minas 1 mina = 3 month's wages 1 talent = 60 x (3 months' wages) = 180 mont…hs' wages 1 talent = 180 months' wages / 12 months in a year = 15 years' wages 1 talent = 15 years' wages 10,000 talents = 150,000 years' wages. So if a yearly wage is $15,000 (about 40hrs/week at CA min wage ($8/hr) 150,000 year's wages = 2,250,000,000 (Two Billion, Two Hundred Fifty Million dollars US) sources: Weights and Measures Table in NIV study bible Footnote of NIV Bible Luke 19:13
A talent of gold weighed 94 pounds if gold were selling for 450.00 an ounce how much would the lampstand be worth?
If a talent of gold weighs 94 pounds. Gold pounds are measured in troy pounds and one troy pound = 12 ounces 94 pounds x 12 troy ounces = 1128 ounces. One ounce of gold at th…e close on Friday, May 02, 2008 cost approximately $855.60 US. 1128 ounces x $855.60 =$965,116.80 And that's just the gold value.
Using the price of gold in 2012 it would be somewhere between 1.5 and 2 billion dollars.
You won't have to pay anything to get into a talent agency you will have to pay 10% of what your payed when they get you a job. If they want you to pay them just to get into t…heir agency you are getting ripped of and should not do it because that means that the place your in Isn't really a talent agency
This is a difficult question to answer as the Talent varied depending upon the area in which it was used. As an example, the Babylonian Talent (as used in the Old Testament) w…as equivalent to 30.3 kg whereas in the New Testament, what was known as the 'Common talent' was equivalent to only 58.9 kg. And, as the Talent was a unit of weight rather than of currency, its actual worth depended upon whether or not it was a Talent of silver or of gold. Whatever its form, the Talent, transferred to a weight of gold or silver, was an extraordinary amount of money. If we assume a New Testament talent of gold, this represents 58900 grams of gold. At today's prices (April 2011) one gram of gold is worth about US$ 46 (or £28 approx). This means that 120 talents of gold are $46 x 58900 x 120. This is $325,128,000 or £197,904,000.
That depends upon what metal you're asking about. There are talentsof gold, silver, copper (Exodus ch.38), and other metals.
A Greek talent was 26 kg. At $414/kg, a talent of silver was worth $10,760. A silver talent was enough to pay 200 rowers for a month worth of work.
Answer Talent agents usually charge a percentage upfront and from any work/jobs that their cleint(s) make. Talent agents generally don't earn a salary but earn… their money through commissions. Depending on what type of talent, work, location and demand, determines how much a talent agent earns.

In The Bible
A unit of currency referring to silver was equivalent to 6,000 denarii where 1 denarius was worth a full days wages. Therefore a talent was a far greater value approaching 6 y…ears worth of wages for labor. It was a lot of money.
In the first century, ten thousand talents would have been an unimaginably large sum. We could have a team of economists attempt to estimate the equivalent value in today's mo…ney after adjustment for inflation and living standards, but they would probably not reach agreement. It was probably not more than a trillion dollars. In the parable of the unjust steward recorded in Matthew's Gospel (18:23-24), Matthew must have known his audience would see the ten thousand talent debt which the king cancelled as pure rhetoric.
