"Caesar's," they said.
Then Jesus said, "Give back to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's" (Mark 12:13-17).
Think About It
The Herodians and Pharisees usually had nothing to do with each other. But both groups felt threatened by Jesus--the Pharisees because He exposed their hypocrisy and the Herodians because they had already lost political power and were afraid of Jesus' authority. The Jews hated to pay taxes. Don't we all? Yet, that is what we must do. Jesus wisely used a Roman coin as an object lesson and amazed the people who tried to trap Him.
Pray About It
