In this message we hear from Pastor Craig Beeker as he teaches on Matthew 22: 15-22. When religious leaders try to trap Jesus with political questions, Jesus turns the trap around on the leaders, and on us, asking about our fidelity to God. We are created in God’s image and yet, in this world, so many things tempt us to build our identity on lesser things. Jesus asks us to see that our whole selves and everything belongs to God. Enjoy our service and Pastor’s message, “Render Unto God.”
This program will guide you through our worship service.
The Question about Paying Taxes
After Jesus begins teaching in the temple, religious leaders try to trap him with questions. First they ask if God’s people should pay taxes to an earthly tyrant like Caesar.
