Bible: Mark 12:14-17

12:14 When they came they said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are truthful and do not court anyone’s favor, because you show no partiality 1  but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. 2  Is it right 3  to pay taxes 4  to Caesar 5  or not? Should we pay or shouldn’t we? 12:15 But he saw through their hypocrisy and said 6  to them, “Why are you testing me? Bring me a denarius 7  and let me look at it.” 12:16 So 8  they brought one, and he said to them, “Whose image 9  is this, and whose inscription?” They replied, 10 Caesar’s.” 12:17 Then Jesus said to them, “Give to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 11  And they were utterly amazed at him.
