For this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his footsteps. 1 Peter 2:21 (Click here.)
October 19 - Twenty-Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
(LECT. 120--YEAR A) (Click here for Roman Liturgical Calendar.)
Many kings of antiquity insisted on being called divine, in direct opposition to Israel's first commandment. Even so, God was not fussy about making use of someone like Cyrus, king of Persia, as one "called by name" to do God's will for the sake of Israel. Cyrus gave permission for the Jews to return and rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple. So God can work even in the realm of politics. The Pharisees and the Herodians are trying to trap Jesus with their question about paying taxes. Saying yes would lose favor with the people; saying no could lead to a charge of treason. A Roman coin would have the emperor's image on it with an inscription claiming divinity. No devout Jew would carry one. Jesus scores his first point when he receives one from his questioners. And he slips out of their trap by advising them to pay back to the emperor what bears his image, but to return to God what bears the divine image, that is, themselves-heart, mind, and spirit.
How successfully do you navigate paying to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God?
