Jesus spoke of money in a significant portion of his teachings, with approximately 15% of his preaching and 11 of the 39 parables devoted to the subject. Sixteen of the thirty-eight parables had to do with how to manage money and possessions. In the Gospels, one in ten verses (288 in all) deals directly with money. The Bible offers 500 verses about prayer, less than 500 verses about faith, but more than 2000 verses about money and possessions. It is an urban legend that Jesus only mentions money in the Bible, as it fails to consider how money is talked about.
Recent research has revealed that there is a reason why the Bible is full of scriptures about money: people need wisdom when it comes to their personal finances. In 1973, Howard, a successful businessman, began studying the Bible and compiled all the Scriptures that talk about money and possessions into a single thematic index. The Bible provides us with valuable insight into Jesus' perspective on money. Jesus taught that money should not be our primary focus, but rather we should use it to serve God and others. He also warned against greed and encouraged us to be generous with our resources.
Finally, Jesus taught us to be wise stewards of our finances and to use them for good.
