"Teacher, we know what you say and what you teach is right. We know that you pay no attention to a man's status, but teach the truth about God's Will for man. Tell us, is it against our Law for us to pay taxes to the Roman Emperor, or not?

But Jesus saw through their trick and said to them, "Show me a silver coin. Whose face and name are these on it?"

"The Emperor's," they answered.

So Jesus said, "Well, then, pay to the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor, and pay to God what belongs to God."

-Jesus Christ to the teachers of the Law and the chief priests, Luke 20: 21-25
