The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Forgiveness (18:21-35)
Forgiveness (18:21-35)

On verses 21-22, compare Luke 17:4. This parable's point is that our fellow disciples (vv. 28-29) are Christ's representatives no less than we are (vv. 5-6), and God will avenge their harsh treatment at the hands of those who claim his mercy for themselves.
