Why should the king care whether the servant forgave his neighbor ? Was the king's forgiveness conditional based upon whether the servant forgave his neighbor. Sounds like a pretty petty king, wouldn't you say ?

Depends on why the king forgave the debt.

If it was the once every seven year thing, where your supposed to forgive the debts of fellow practishioners of your religion - than I could see why he would be angry. After all, if the servant did not forgive his neighbor, than he wasn't following the same rules.

Personally, I like Passover. Every year your supposed to forgive everyone who has wronged you. Everyone. Period.
