Peter Gets a Coin From a Fishes Mouth

Peter Gets a Coin From a Fishes Mouth

Focus Verse:
Phil. 4:6
“Don’t worry but let God know what you need.”

Overview

Some tax collectors, who didn’t like Jesus and were trying to cause trouble, came to Peter and asked, “Does Jesus pay the temple tax?” Peter said, “Yes, he does.”
Then Peter went into the house where Jesus was. Jesus had not heard what they were talking about outside, but he knew, because he is God and knows everything. He asked Peter a question. He asked, “Do kings collect taxes from their sons, or from other people?” Peter said, “From other people, not their sons.” Now Jesus is God’s son, and the temple is God’s house, so Jesus didn’t need to pay the temple tax. But Jesus told Peter, “So that we won’t upset people, I’ll pay the tax.”
