Best Answer

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.

How much is 120 talents worth?

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) was 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.

How much silver is a talent worth?

It is a measure of weight, not worth. Two types of Biblical talent were in use. The ordinary talent was about 30 kilos. You'll have to multiply that by whatever the price of silver is or was at a given time. The purchasing power of silver has changed drastically in history. The other talent was for sacred use such as Tabernacle or Temple property. It was close to 60 kilograms.It is important to note first, as Dan Galilee has below, that a "talent of silver" is a measure of weight, not value, and that the value of silver has changed dramatically throughout history (especially due to new mining techniques and the numerous New World silver mines adding much more silver to the general pool). However, at the 2005 price of silver, a talent was worth $660,000 USD.
