KJV American Patriots Bible

KJV American Patriots Bible

KJV American Patriots Bible is a King James translation of the Old and New Testament with commentary and add ins of American history.  Scattered throughout the Bible are snapshots of great heroes of our country.  Each one paints a picture of how faith inspired or shaped their beliefs and ultimately left its mark on our country's history.

This is a beautiful printing.  The text of the Bible and layout are fantastic.  There are also some beautiful full color pages inside that add to the retelling of out nation's history.  I am quite impressed.  This is a great Bible for daily reading.  More importantly, it is a fantastic treasure for anyone who values God's word as part of the founding of the USA.

I'd give this book 5 out of 5.

Give Unto Caesar

Matthew 22:15-22

Jesus was confronted by the Pharisees about paying tribute money to Caesar. The idea was to trap Him. If He denied the tribute, they would get the Romans to come against Him. If He adhered to it, they would stir up the pride of the people. Most of Israel viewed the tribute as oppression and in defiance of their national pride. It was a reminder that they were a conquered people. Jesus' answer was awesome. "Who's image is on the money?". When they answered "Caesar's", He told them to give to Caesar that which was His. They could not respond

In a deeper look, the money was to be given to Caesar because it bore His image. When Jesus looks at us, do we bear the image of God so as to be seen a worthy offering?
