Week 11: Day 4 - Wednesday (March 13, 2019)
1) Read Matthew 22:15-22
Question about taxes
15Then the Pharisees met together to find a way to trap Jesus in his words. 16They sent their disciples, along with the supporters of Herod, to him. "Teacher," they said, "we know that you are genuine and that you teach God’s way as it really is. We know that you are not swayed by people’s opinions, because you don’t show favoritism. 17So tell us what you think: Does the Law allow people to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"
18Knowing 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." 22When they heard this they were astonished, and they departed.
