Hymn: It's heads I win and tails you lose

Proper 24 year A

Matthew 22: 15-22

It's heads I win and tails you lose:

terms calculated to abuse,

such tangled words to trip Christ up,

a poisoned chalice, bitter cup.

But Jesus saw right through their plan,

a subtle, thoughtful, cunning man;

he played with language, used his skill,

soon turned the tables to his will...


18th Sunday after Pentecost, Matthew 22: 15 – 22, Pharisees, Herodians, cunning, mailice, questions, intellect, taxes, coin, Jesus, Caesar, answer, debt
