  •  here is an alternate explanation (0+ / 0-)

    In Bible study years ago I heard it explained like this:

    every Jew knew that Palestine and it's wealth were given to the Jews straight from God, not from Rome. therefore, Palestine was exempted from among those things to be rendered to Ceasar.

    it was an exhortation to not use roman currency or to deal with Rome.

    having said that, I heartily agree that O'Reilly does not get it right. none of it. if Christians believed in a modern-day parallel they would be boycotting the political process and saving the rest of us a lot of hassle.
