Jesus, referring to a `penny` asked, `Whose is this image and superscription?` When told it was Caesar, He said, ''Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's` (Matthew 22:20-21). Since Tiberius was Caesar at the time, this denarius type is attributed by scholars as the `penny` referred to in the Bible.
