The answer Jesus gives the Pharisees in today's Gospel is nothing short of awesome.
"Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God."
What an answer!
Every time I think about how I would have stammered and stuttered trying to answer that pop quiz, I grow more in awe of Christ.
I mean, he totally slays them. It is such a perfect answer to an imperfect question. Even Matthew tells us the Pharisees were "amazed".
But this year, I saw this answer in an even greater light.
The first part of His answer was easy. People continued giving taxes to Caesar. But not too long after that, Jesus showed us what the second part of His answer meant...
He gave His Body and Soul back to His Father on the cross - ironically asking Him to forgive those who our Savior had admonished just days earlier.
God Bless you.
