Matthew 21, When Jesus returned to the Temple and was teaching, the chief priests and leaders demanded to know by whose authority he had thrown out the merchants the day before. “I’ll tell you if you answer one question first,” Jesus replied. “Was John the Baptist sent from God or not?” They talked it over among themselves. “If we say, ‘From God,’” they said, “then he will ask why we didn’t believe what John said. And if we deny that God sent him, we’ll be mobbed, for the crowd all think he was a prophet.” So they finally replied, “We don’t know!” And Jesus said, “Then I won’t answer your question either. Jesus said: A man with two sons told the older boy, ‘Son, go out and work on the farm today. ‘I won’t,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. The father told the youngest, ‘You go!’ and he said, ‘Yes, sir, I will.’ But he didn’t. Which of the two was obeying his father?” They replied, “The first, of course.” Jesus explained: “Surely evil men and prostitutes will get into the Kingdom before you do. John the Baptist told you to repent and turn to God, and you wouldn’t, but evil men and prostitutes did. When you refused to repent, you couldn’t believe. When the chief priests and leaders realized that Jesus was talking about them, they wanted to get rid of him but were afraid to try because of the crowds, for they accepted Jesus as a prophet. FRIENDS, JESUS HAS ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN, EARTH AND BENEATH THE EARTH. Philippians 2:9-11 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
