The King's Cross (Mark 8-16)
Mark 12:13-17 | Render to Caesar

The day after his Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, Jesus is confronted by the religious authorities who have conspired to trap and eliminate him. “Should we pay the tax to Ceasar?” they demand. But really they are asking if Jesus is the Messiah, a revolutionary. He is. But as his response reveals, he is not at all the type of revolutionary and messiah that they imagine.
