Matthew 17:24 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

24 When they came to Capernaum, the collectors of the temple tax[a] approached Peter and said, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”

Footnotes:

  1. 17:24 The temple tax: before the destruction of the Jerusalem temple in A.D. 70 every male Jew above nineteen years of age was obliged to make an annual contribution to its upkeep (cf. Ex 30:11–16; Neh 10:33). After the destruction the Romans imposed upon Jews the obligation of paying that tax for the temple of Jupiter Capitolinus. There is disagreement about which period the story deals with.
