I’m working through this passage and am trying to decide how the leading questions that Jesus asks Peter should be arced.
Right now, I’m separating Jesus’ questions in v25 as three separate phrases. 1. What do you think? 2. From whom do the kings take tax? and 3. Do they take from sons or others?
Is that how you see it, or should there only be two phrases here? Or even 4 by separating the sons and others? I think NASB keeps it to 2 and the ESV has 3.
Also, how would you arc v26a (And when he said, “From others,”)? My gut reaction is to call it a temporal because of the “when,” as if Matthew isn’t focusing on Peter’s obvious answer but keeping the attention on Jesus’ logic. But it also looks like a Q&A.
