Context16And they sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying, Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any. 17Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not? 18But Jesus perceived their malice, and said, Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites? 19Show Me the coin used for the poll-tax. And they brought Him a denarius. 20And He said to them, Whose likeness and inscription is this? 21They said to Him, Caesars. Then He said to them, Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesars; and to God the things that are Gods. 22And hearing this, they were amazed, and leaving Him, they went away.
Jesus Answers the Sadducees
23On that day some Sadducees (who say there is no resurrection) came to Jesus and questioned Him, 24asking, Teacher, Moses said, IF A MAN DIES HAVING NO CHILDREN, HIS BROTHER AS NEXT OF KIN SHALL MARRY HIS WIFE, AND RAISE UP CHILDREN FOR HIS BROTHER. 25Now there were seven brothers with us; and the first married and died, and having no children left his wife to his brother; 26so also the second, and the third, down to the seventh. 27Last of all, the woman died. 28In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had married her.
29But Jesus answered and said to them, You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God. 30For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. 31But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God: 32I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB? He is not the God of the dead but of the living. 33When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at His teaching.
34But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together. 35One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law? 37And He said to him, YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND. 38This is the great and foremost commandment. 39The second is like it, YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. 40On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.
41Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question: 42What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He? They said to Him, The son of David. 43He said to them, Then how does David in the Spirit call Him Lord, saying,

Eversley, 1869. Chester Cathedral, 1872. Matthew xxii. 21. "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's." Many a sermon has been preached, and many a pamphlet written, on this text, and (as too often has happened to Holy Scripture), it has been made to mean the most opposite doctrines, and twisted in every direction, to suit men's opinions and superstitions. Some have found in it a command to obey tyrants, invaders, any and every government, …
