    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Anf-01 viii.ii.xvii Pg 3
    Matt. xxii. 17, 19, 20, 21.

    Whence to God alone we render worship, but in other things we gladly serve you, acknowledging you as kings and rulers of men, and praying that with your kingly power you be found to possess also sound judgment. <index subject1="Wicked, their punishment" title="168" id="viii.ii.xvii-p3.2"/>But if you pay no regard to our prayers and frank explanations, we shall suffer no loss, since we believe (or rather, indeed, are persuaded) that every man will suffer punishment in eternal fire according to the merit of his deed, and will render account according to the power he has received from God, as Christ intimated when He said, “To whom God has given more, of him shall more be required.”1802

    1802


    Anf-01 ix.iv.ix Pg 2
    Matt. xxii. 21.

    naming indeed Cæsar as Cæsar, but confessing God as God. In like manner also, that [text] which says, “Ye cannot serve two masters,”3365

    Matt. xxii. 21; Mark xii. 17; Luke xx. 25.

    It is enough that He set in apposition thereto, “and to God the things which are God’s.” What things, then, are Cæsar’s? Those, to wit, about which the consultation was then held, whether the poll-tax should be furnished to Cæsar or no. Therefore, too, the Lord demanded that the money should be shown Him, and inquired about the image, whose it was; and when He had heard it was Cæsar’s, said, “Render to Cæsar what are Cæsar’s, and what are God’s to God;” that is, the image of Cæsar, which is on the coin, to Cæsar, and the image of God, which is on man,279

    Anf-03 iv.vi.xii Pg 5
    Matt. xxii. 21.

    not only not to render the human being to God, but even to take the denarius from Cæsar? Is the laurel of the triumph made of leaves, or of corpses? Is it adorned with ribbons, or with tombs? Is it bedewed with ointments, or with the tears of wives and mothers? It may be of some Christians too;426

    426 [Such considerations may account for our author’s abandonment of what he says in the Apology; which compare in capp. xlii. and xxxix.]

    for Christ is also among the barbarians.427

    427 [Et apud barbaros enim Christus. See Kaye’s argument, p. 87.]

    Has not he who has carried (a crown for) this cause on his head, fought even against himself?  Another son of service belongs to the royal guards. And indeed crowns are called (Castrenses), as belonging to the camp; Munificæ likewise, from the Cæsarean functions they perform. But even then you are still the soldier and the servant of another; and if of two masters, of God and Cæsar: but assuredly then not of Cæsar, when you owe yourself to God, as having higher claims, I should think, even in matters in which both have an interest.
