Caesar - a Christian perspective
Religious leaders, trying to trip up Jesus with a politically touchy question, asked him whether or not taxes should be paid to the Roman Caesar. Jesus' response steered clear of their trap and turned the question on its head.
"Render" in the Bible: Matthew 22:21
The NIV tranlates "Render" as give, but the sentiment remains. We are to render unto Caesar, or the government, what is his and give what is God's to God.
