Render to Caesar what is Caesar's

Render to Caesar what is Caesar's

Passage: Matthew 22:15-22

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Matthew: The King and His Kingdom

Category: Expository Book Study

In this text, an unholy alliance of the Pharisees and the Herodians (a pro-Rome party) seek to trap Jesus. Jesus leaves them speechless with an object lesson from a coin. The text is easy to understand. However, how do we approach the counsel to “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s” in a context where our government actively promotes social and moral evils? Easy interpretation… hard application. Join us as we wrestle with this powerful text and its implications for today.
