Seeking source of Biblical quote


I’m wondering if anyone out there can provide the chapter and verse for the quote that goes something like: “To whom much is given, much is expected.” Thanks!


I just did a search. What you are looking for is: Luke 12:48

Via NAB at

and the servant who was ignorant of his master’s will but acted in a way deserving of a severe beating shall be beaten only lightly. Much will be required of the person entrusted with much, and still more will be demanded of the person entrusted with more.
