Give Unto Our Presidents What Is Our Presidents’

On this President’s Day holiday I thought it would be fun to look at our American currency to see whose face is on what dollar bill. And then of course, it’s to the Bible we go…give unto the presidents the things which are the presidents’.  

 ”And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.  Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s. When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.” – Matthew 22:16-22 KJV

With this thought, here are the images of our presidents and other statesmen on our dollar bills. Do you know which men earned the honor of being on a dollar bill without being president?

Give Unto Our Presidents What Is Our Presidents’ — 4 Comments

  1. you kind of gave us the answer in your captions… but how interesting anyway! does that mean we should we render unto ben franklin our 100 bills? I suppose in a manner of speaking, when we pay our taxes, but what a weird picture in my mind now during this tax season. The question then is posed, what things are God’s?
