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.
