“Is it right to pay the imperial tax to Caesar or not?”
It is often said that death and taxes are the only two guaranteed things in life. The idea of paying taxes has been around for thousands of years, continuing to this very day, April 15th “Tax Day” in the U.S. Jesus was presented with this very same issue during his public ministry in Jerusalem. Was it right or wrong to pay the “occupier” tax to the Romans? This was not a tax levied on every individual in the Roman Empire, only those who were not Roman citizens.
