Paying Taxes To Caesar

Matthew 22:15-22

15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel together how they might lay a snare to entrap him in his discourse. 16 And they sent to him their disciples, with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God with veracity; and carest for no man, for thou regardest not the person of men: 17 tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to pay tribute to Caesar, or not?

18 But Jesus knew their wicked design, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? 19 Shew me the money for the tribute; and they brought him a denarius. 20 And he saith unto them, Whose figure is this and inscription?

21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he to them, Render therefore to Caesar, the things which are Caesar's; and to God, the things which are God's. 22 And when they heard him, they marvelled, and leaving him, went away.

Mark 12:13-17

13 And they sent unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, that they might entrap him in discourse. 14 And they come and say to him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest not for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to pay tribute to Caesar, or not? 15 shall we pay, or shall we not pay it? but he, perceiving their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a denarius, that I may see it. 16 And they brought it. And he said unto them, Whose figure and inscription is this? they say unto him, Caesar's.

17 And Jesus addressing them, said, Render the things which are Caesar's, to Caesar; and what belongs to God, to God. And they marvelled at him.

Luke 20:20-26

20 And watching him, they sent men they had suborned, who pretended that they were righteous persons, in order to lay hold of some word of his, that they might deliver him to the power and authority of the governor. 21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou speakest and teachest rightly, and respectest no man's person, but teachest the way of God in truth: 22 Is it lawful for us to pay tribute to Caesar, or not?

23 Then he, aware of their crafty design, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? 24 Shew me a denarius. Whose image and inscription hath it? And they answering said, Caesar's.

25 Then said he to them, Pay therefore to Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and to God the things which are God's.

26 And they were unable to lay hold of a single expression of his before the people: and marvelling at his answer, they were silenced.
