Series: The Gospel According to Matthew
Preacher: Rev. Philip Bunch
Jesus in this passage explains the relationship between the church and the state. More importantly, He demonstrates that God is over all things. And through the Gospel, specifically, Jesus enables His followers to live in any nation-state, no matter what system of government is in power. Christians can pay taxes to a tyrant just as they can to a benevolent ruler. This is possible only because God has provided everything His people need in Jesus Christ.
