But he who had received the one went off and dug in the earth and hid his master's money.

This is the parable of Faithfulness in Matthew 25, where the Lord gave each of His slaves talents. Some 1 some 2 and some 5, according to the ability of the slave in the Master's household.

What I want to know is this. Looking at this verse, what does it mean for the slave to hide his talent in the EARTH? What does the earth here symbolize?

Ty for taking the time to look into this particular point in this verse.
