  • Matthew 22:17-22

    17 So tell us what you think: Does the Law allow people to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”

    18 Knowing their evil motives, Jesus replied, “Why do you test me, you hypocrites? 19  Show me the coin used to pay the tax.” And they brought him a denarion. 20 “Whose image and inscription is this?” he asked.

    21 “Caesar’s,” they replied.

    Then he said, “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.” 22 When they heard this they were astonished, and they departed.
