Jesus' Authority Questioned

(Mat 21:23–27; Mar 11:27–33 )

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:3 - And he answered and said unto them, I also will ask you a question; and tell me:
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:4 - The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or from men?
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:5 - And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why did ye not believe him?
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:6 - But if we shall say, From men; all the people will stone us: for they are persuaded that John was a prophet.
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:7 - And they answered, that they knew not whence it was.
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:8 - And Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:13 - And the lord of the vineyard said, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; it may be they will reverence him.
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:14 - But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned one with another, saying, This is the heir; let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:15 - And they cast him forth out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:16 - He will come and destroy these husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:17 - But he looked upon them, and said, What then is this that is written,
The stone which the builders rejected,
The same was made the head of the corner?

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:35 - but they that are accounted worthy to attain to that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:36 - for neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:37 - But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the place concerning the Bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:46 - Beware of the scribes, who desire to walk in long robes, and love salutations in the marketplaces, and chief seats in the synagogues, and chief places at feasts;
Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 20:47 - who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater condemnation.
