Was Jesus an obedient citizen?

According the biography of Jesus as seen in the New Testament Gospels, He

obeyed the laws of the country. He believed in submitting to the authorities and would thus have been an obedient citizen. 

However, Jesus was first and foremost a citizen of Heaven. He would have always obeyed His heavenly Father above all. He would never have honored something that went against the higher commandments of His heavenly Father.

When a question about taxes was asked to Jesus, He miraculously plucked a coin out of a fish’s mouth and suggested that one should pay taxes. This was His famous statement on that subject: “Give to Ceasar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s”.
