Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"
Jesus saw they were trying to trick him. So he said to them,
"Show me a silver coin. Whose picture and words are on it?"
"Caesar's," they replied. He said to them, "Then give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. And give to God what belongs to God."
They were not able to trap him with what he had said there in front of all the people. Amazed by his answer, they became silent.
The Sadducees do not believe that people rise from the dead. Some of them came to Jesus with a question.
"Teacher," they said, "Moses wrote for us about a man's brother who dies. Suppose the brother leaves a wife but has no children. Then the man must get married to the widow. He must have children to carry on his dead brother's name.
"There were seven brothers. The first one got married to a woman. He died without leaving any children.
The second one got married to her.
And then the third one got married to her. One after another, the seven brothers got married to her. They all died. None left any children.
Finally, the woman died too.
