The man in today’s parable had such a large debt that he had no hope of paying it off. The master cancels the debt: he doesn’t just give him time or let him pay in instalments. The point of the story is that God forgives us our debts (‘trespasses’) completely. This is what redemption is: our debts are wiped out as if they never existed.
