How much is a talent worth?


Talent

= 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.


Ex. 38:24-29
1Kings 9:14
Matt. 18:24, 25:15-18
Rev. 16:21

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.
