What do we owe to Caesar?

Whenever we consider what it means for Christ to be King, we immediately confront the fact that his claim to be King is an unavoidably political claim. A king is a political ruler, with authority over his realm, and subjects who are expected to do his bidding.

For Christ to claim to be king, and for God’s people to proclaim him as king, needs to take into account that in our world there are other kings, other rulers, politicians, who claim our allegiance.

As Christians we need to understand how present-day political systems are to be viewed in the light of Christ’s heavenly rule over all things.
