ContextJesus' Authority Challenged
1And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came on him with the elders, 2And spoke to him, saying, Tell us, by what authority do you these things? or who is he that gave you this authority? 3And he answered and said to them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me: 4The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? 5And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed you him not? 6But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet. 7And they answered, that they could not tell from where it was. 8And Jesus said to them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
