JESUS  PAYS TEMPLE TAX 
Matt 17 Mark Luke
24 When they came to Capernaum,    
  the collectors of the half-shekel tax went up to Peter    
  and said,    
  "Does not your teacher pay the tax?"    

25

He said,    
  "Yes."    
  And when he came home,    
  Jesus spoke to him first,    
  "What do you think, Simon?    
  From whom do the kings of the earth take toll or tribute?    
  From their sons or from others?"    

26

And when he said,    
  "From others,"    
  Jesus said to him,    
  "Then the sons are free.    
27 However, not to give offense to them,    
  go to the sea and cast a hook,    
  and take the first fish that comes up,    
  and when you open its mouth    
  you will find a shekel;    
  take that    
  and give it to them    
  for me and for yourself."
