f. The Application of the Revelation and Vision of Christ's Sonship

24 And when they came to aCapernaum, those who take up the 1btemple tax came to Peter and said, Does not your Teacher pay the 1temple tax?

25 He said, 1Yes. And when he came into the house, Jesus 2anticipated him, saying, What do you athink, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth receive custom or poll tax, from their sons or from strangers?

26 And when he said, From strangers, Jesus said to him, So then the 1sons are free.

27 But that we do not astumble them, 1go to the sea and cast a hook, and take the first fish that comes up. And when you open its mouth, you will find a 2stater; take that and 3give it to them for Me 4and you.
