Jesus and taxes

So about 2000 years ago a Hebrew rabbi was leading a peaceful rebellion against the establishment of his day. Cornered by both the religious and governmental aristocracy, he was asked in front of his followers, “Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”

Hu? What’s so marvelous about his answer? Just pay your taxes, dude. Well let’s find out shall we. Click play.
