Tribute Penny Tiberius 14-37 AD


SKU: BC-9 Category:


This was the standard coin used during Jesus’ lifetime when Tiberius (42 BC–37 AD) was Emperor. Tiberius ruled from 14 to 37 AD and was the son of Tiberius Claudius Nero and Livia Drusilla. The Bible tells us that some Pharisees and the Herodians came to Jesus and said to Him, “Teacher, we know that You are true, and care about no one; for You do not regard the person of men, but teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not? Shall we pay, or shall we not pay? And Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.’” (Mark 12:13-17). This is the coin that Jesus was talking about.
