Bible: Matthew 21:24-27

21:24 Jesus 1  answered them, “I will also ask you one question. If you answer me then I will also tell you by what authority I do these things. 21:25 Where did John’s baptism come from? From heaven or from people?” 2  They discussed this among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say, ‘Then why did you not believe him?’ 21:26 But if we say, ‘From people,’ we fear the crowd, for they all consider John to be a prophet.” 21:27 So 3  they answered Jesus, 4 We don’t know.” 5  Then he said to them, “Neither will I tell you 6  by what authority 7  I am doing these things.
