IF It Is Possible

Romans 12:18 (KJB) If it , possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

It Is A Trap

Matthew 22:17 (KJB) Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

To get a proper context about this pointed question, a person must read the verses immediately surrounding this particular verse.  Then we must realize that it does not matter which way Jesus Christ answers this question.

If Jesus Christ were to answer that it is proper to pay tribute to Caesar, then these clever Herodians would make sure that ordinary citizens are aware ...
