Matt 22:15-22

  1. Then the Pharisees went and plotted how they might entangle Him in His talk.

  2. And they sent to Him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that You are true, and teach the way of God in truth; nor do You care about anyone, for You do not regard the person of men.

  3. "Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?"

  4. But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, "Why do you test Me, you hypocrites?

  5. "Show Me the tax money." So they brought Him a denarius.

  6. And He said to them, "Whose image and inscription is this?"

  7. They said to Him, "Caesar's." And He said to them, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."

  8. When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way.

Mark 12:13-17

13 Then they sent to Him some of the Pharisees and the Herodians, to catch Him in His words.

14 When they had come, they said to Him, "Teacher, we know that You are true, and care about no one; for You do not regard the person of men, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?

15 "Shall we pay, or shall we not pay?" But He, knowing their hypocrisy, said to them, "Why do you test Me? Bring Me a denarius that I may see it."

16 So they brought it. And He said to them, "Whose image and inscription is this?" And they said to Him, "Caesar's."

17 And Jesus answered and said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they marveled at Him.

Luke 20:20-26

20 So they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, that they might seize on His words, in order to deliver Him to the power and the authority of the governor.

21 Then they asked Him, saying, "Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth:

22 "Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"

  1. But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, "Why do you test Me?

  2. "Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?" They answered and said, "Caesar's."

  3. And He said to them, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."

  4. But they could not catch Him in His words in the presence of the people. And they marveled at His answer and kept silent.
