The Pharisees and the Herodians tried to trap Jesus with a trick question. It was a lose/lose, no matter which way he responded.
But Jesus matched their malice with his own cunning. He asked whose image was stamped on the coin. The emperor’s? Well then, the coin should go to the emperor. Give to God the things that are God’s.
What bears God’s image? We do! We are created in God’s image…all of us.
Rev. Tonja's message, "Whose Image is Stamped on You?" is based on Matthew 22:15-22. Participate in worship on our YouTube channel beginning at 10:30AM. Sing along with the hymns and follow along with the virtual bulletin here.
