Exodus 30:13 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel [is] twenty gerahs:) an half shekel [shall be] the offering of the LORD.

The phrase shekel of the sanctuary is mentioned 25 times in the Bible.[1]

A a didrachmon or double drachma, a silver coin equal to two Attic drachmas or one Alexandrian, or one half a shekel which was "an offering to the LORD"

The half shekel as the "shekel of the sanctuary" was an expression that you were still a part of the Tens. You were saying I am counted among you. The tribes of Israel with the Levites and the Early Christians community with the early Church functioned as a network of congregations or free assemblies that supported one another in Pure Religion through freewill offerings. Unlike the governments of the world, they did not depend on taxation but charity.

"Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD. 15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls.16 And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel before the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls." Exodus 30:14

This token offering, this "shekel of the sanctuary", allowed the Church in the wilderness who were the Levites to know who was still numbered amongst them and where they were connected in the living network which was the kingdom of God. As that "memorial" the whole nation knew where they fit in this alternative network of liberty.



The One word translated shekel is the Hebrew noun לקשׁ or sheqel[2] which also appears as a verb לקשׁ or shaqal[3] some 22 times[4] but is not translated shekel but weigh, pay, throughly, receive, receiver and spend.
