Jun 2 7.17 When they reached Capernaum, temple tax collectors came to Peter and asked, “Doesnt your Teacher pay temple tax?” Replying “Yes”, he entered the house where Jesus preempted1 him and said, “Peter, from whom do earthly kings exact tax, from their sons or others?” “From others,” Peter replied.

Jesus said, “Then, sons are exempt. But lest we offend, go to the sea, cast a hook, catch the first fish, open its mouth, and youll find a coin enough for us both to give them.”
