Luke 22:24-26 (NIV):

24 A dispute also arose among them [*] as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves."

* This is at the last supper, shortly before Jesus was crucified. It was just after Jesus instituted the sacrament of holy communion. Those present were the favored 11 disciples, Judas having already gone to do his dastardly deed... preparations to betray Jesus. There were probably other disciples present, besides the eleven.



[ben-uh-fak-ter, ben-uh-fak-]
a person who confers a benefit; kindly helper.
a person who makes a bequest or endowment, as to an institution.


In other words, Jesus call the leaders and rulers liars when they take on the roll of benefactors.

This merely shows how easily scripture can be corrupted. NOWHERE does Jesus say to sell what you have and give to the government. The transactions are always to the (poor) people--never to give money to the government. (the parable of the coin to Caesar was an avoidance of the question) Jesus almost got stoned when he lectured (in the only recorded dialogue in a synagogue) that the city/county tax collectors (who were Pharisees and conducted religious services on the Sabbath) were ripping off the widows and the poor. Jesus also displayed violence against the “money changers” who ripped off citizens who were compelled to purchase shekels (only used in the Temple for ALL transactions to purchase sacrifices and commodities from businesses and traders) with the coins in circulation through out the area (Roman, Greek, and Egyptian coins). The practice could be a combination of a sales tax, a merchants tax, a banking fee, in addition to a leasing fee for the merchant to obtain a trade stall from the Sanhedrin who owned the market place.
