"Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto GOD the things that are GOD's." This response by Immanuel-Christ-Jesus[I.C.J.] begins in Matt.22:15 - through 21. The Pharisees took council[Fake Court-System] in an effort to "entangle" the LORD. The wicked disciples messed up by calling HIM Master: Then proceed to con, the Creator of Heaven and earth.
Question: Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not.
I.C.J. called them "Hypocrites"[Fakes: just like modern Courts]. Tribute was a type of poll-tax, paid in Roman money, by each person enrolled in the census; approx. a penny at that time, 26 cents today. It was a source of revenue for the Govt..
Render[give, re-pay] unto Caesar[President] a small portion for services provided by the Govt.. And unto GOD: your love, worship, obedience.
