They put to him this sh'eilah: "Rabbi, we know that you speak and teach straightforwardly, showing no partiality but really teaching what God's way is.
Does Torah permit us to pay taxes to the Roman Emperor or not?"
But he, spotting their craftiness, said to them,
"Show me a denarius! Whose name and picture does it have?" "The Emperor's," they replied.
"Then," he said to them, "give the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor. And give God what belongs to God!"

Some Tz'dukim, who say there is no resurrection, came to Yeshua
and put to him a sh'eilah: "Rabbi, Moshe wrote for us that if a man dies leaving a wife but no children, his brother must take the wife and have children to preserve the man's family line.
Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife and died child less,
then the second
and third took her, and likewise all seven, but they all died without leaving children.
