(36) Caesar's & God's

One day the Pharisees met together to trap Jesus into saying
something for which they could accuse him.
So they asked Jesus this question,
"We know how honest you are.
Now tell us what you think about his:
Is it right to pay taxes to the Roman government or not?"
But Jesus knew their evil motives.
"Show me the Roman coin used for the tax."
When they handed him the coin,
Jesus asked,
"Whose picture and title are stamped on it?"
"Caesar's" They replied.
"Well, then, give to Caesar what belongs to him.
and give to God what belongs to God."
People were amazed at his word and went away.
