Of his Paying the Tribute Money Out of the Mouth of the Fish, an Incident which Matthew Alone Mentions.
118. Matthew continues in these terms: "And when they were come to Capharnaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said to him, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes;" and so on, down to where we read: "Thou shall find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee." [1107] He is the only one who relates this occurrence, after the interposition of which he follows again the order which is pursued also by Mark and Luke in company with him.

[1107] Matthew 17:23-27.
