You give to Caesar what is Caesar’s because it belongs to him.
For every single one of us have the mark of our father.
But then this begs the question – with much bigger implications:
To the answer “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s.” The questioners should have responded: “What belongs to God?” Jesus might have said: “Whose portrait and inscription are on you?”
-Ravi Zacharias, The End of Reason
Matthew 22 15-22:
15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted how they might entangle Him in His talk.
16 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 [c]regard the person of men.
17 Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites?
19 Show Me the tax money.” So they brought Him a denarius.
20 And He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?”
21 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.”
22 When they had heard these words, they marveled, and left Him and went their way.
