Now tell us—is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?”
He saw through their trickery and said,
“Show me a Roman coin. Whose picture and title are stamped on it?” “Caesar’s,” they replied.
“Well then,” he said, “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.”
So they failed to trap him by what he said in front of the people. Instead, they were amazed by his answer, and they became silent.
Then Jesus was approached by some Sadducees—religious leaders who say there is no resurrection from the dead.
They posed this question: “Teacher, Moses gave us a law that if a man dies, leaving a wife but no children, his brother should marry the widow and have a child who will carry on the brother’s name.
Well, suppose there were seven brothers. The oldest one married and then died without children.
So the second brother married the widow, but he also died.
Then the third brother married her. This continued with all seven of them, who died without children.
Finally, the woman also died.
So tell us, whose wife will she be in the resurrection? For all seven were married to her!”
