In today’s Christian Religious Studies class, We will be discussing Jesus Paid Tax. We hope you enjoy the class!
Jesus Paid Tax(Mat 22:15-22)
On one occasion, the Herodians and Pharisees asked Jesus if it was proper to pay tax to Caesar. Jesus knew that they were trying to put Him to test. Therefore, he requested to see the money for the tax and they brought Him a coin and He said to them, whose likeness and inscription is this? They said, “Caesar’s”.
Finally, Jesus said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar, the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s”. By this statement, Jesus meant that Christians should obey the civil laws of the land by paying their taxes and dues to the government. At the same time, they should not forget to obey religious laws with respect to God.
Jesus Obeyed the Religious Laws (Mat 17:24-27)
One day at Capernaum, the collectors of the half-shekel tax accused Jesus of not paying the Temple tax which was required by every male Jew above the age of nineteen (19).
To show the people that He was law-abiding, Jesus sent Peter to go and get a shekel in an unusual way, by telling him to go to the sea and take the money from the mouth of the fish that he would catch and pay the tax for himself and Peter.
We have come to the end of this class. We do hope you enjoyed the class?
