The story is about two men who owe a debt a creditor, one 50 denarii and the other 500 denarii. In Matthew 20:2, Jesus uses an example of a laborer working in a vineyards for one denarius per day. So, we can assume that in this parable, one owed fifty days wages and the other five hundred days wages. Each debtor owes a considerable sum for that time period but one owed substantially more than he other. However, in this parable, both debts were forgiven by the creditor, regardless of the amount owed.
