Trinity 23 2010 – Doctrine of the Two Realms


Sermon by Rev. Christian C. Tiews – 11/07/2010

“Show me the coin for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius. 20 And Jesus said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” 21 They said, “Caesar’s.” Then he said to them, “Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 22 When they heard it, they marveled. And they left him and went away” (Mt 22:19-22)

As we approach the end of the church year, the themes in our Gospel lessons focus on “big picture” topics.

As such, the core message this morning is not one of the many miracles of Christ.

Rather, today we will discuss a key teaching of Christ, namely that there are two completely different realms on this earth and that you and I are citizens of both.
