    FATHER ANTHONY’S FAITH FORMATION CORNER Matthew 22:15-21: Give to God What is God’s

    GIVE TO CAESAR WHAT BELONGS TO CAESAR, AND TO GOD WHAT BELONGS TO GOD! Most of us have heard of this famous line from Matthew’s Gospel. Throughout Christian history, this text has been used to support the doctrine of the separation between Church and state. While it is true that one’s obligations to both Church and state are of paramount importance: however, whether or not that rigid distinction was the intention of Jesus (and of the evangelist) is a different ques- tion… A little bit of historical/biblical background is needed to under- stand this passage. The two groups mentioned are the Pharisees and the Herodians. Their goal is to “entrap” Jesus by posing the question: is it lawful to pay the poll tax to Caesar, or not? During the time of Jesus, the Roman Empire had control over the land of Palestine. Jews living under Roman rule had to pay a certain census tax: paid in Roman currency, most notably the coin that bore the image and name of the Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar. The Pharisees, for the most part, were reasonable people even though they opposed Roman rule. The Herodians, though also Jews, most likely supported the tax since they needed the Romans to remain in power. On the contrary, there were in Jesus’ time ardent Jewish nationalists who strongly opposed anything Roman. Against this background, if Jesus answers the question in the affirmative: not only would he lose face with the nationalists, but he would also be perceived as one betraying his own ancestral heritage. If he were to answer “No” to the question, he would definitely get into trouble with the Roman government. But Jesus wisely asks his questioners to show him the tax coin. Since it is the Roman coinage with the name and image of the Emperor, Jesus tells them: “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God.” In fact, since that coin bears the image of Tiberius Caesar, Jesus simply demands that it be given back to Cae- sar where it came from… By his clever answer, Jesus gets out of the trap of the Pharisees and Herodians. But at the same time, he also challenges them to pay as much (and even much more) attention to those things that pertain to God as to those that pertain to Caesar. In other words, what began as a trick question eventually turns into a spiritual challenge. As I mentioned earlier, this famous line has been used to support the teaching of the separation of Church and state. But I do not think that it was intended by either Jesus or the evangelist. The main intention of evangelist was to show Jesus’ cleverness in getting out of the trap: and more importantly, to pose the chal- lenge of rendering to God what belongs to him… Ultimately for Jesus and for us, everything belongs to God and everything will ultimately be rendered back unto him!
