God, Caesar and Taxes: Living at the Intersection of Two Legal Systems

Date: 
Monday, February 18, 2019 - 12:00pm to 12:50pm
Location: 
Classroom F (246), Hirsch Hall

Please join the Christian Legal Society for a lunch presentation featuring Associate Dean Randy Beck. The discussion is titled "God, Caesar and Taxes: Living at the Intersection of Two Legal Systems." Christians are citizens of the kingdom of God who simultaneously live within the jurisdiction of a human government. Potential tensions can arise for those subject to two sets of legal obligations imposed by two distinct authorities. Jesus' response to a challenging question about paying taxes to Caesar offers insight for living faithfully and wisely in a polarized culture.

Lunch will be provided.
