In Matthew 22, the Pharisees attempt to trip Jesus up again with a question about paying taxes to Caesar. Attempting to trap Jesus with a question that has problematic consequences no matter how he answered it if he would have answered it directly, Jesus tells the Pharisees and other listeners to render unto Caesar that which belongs to Caesar and to God that which belongs to God.
