Sep 17 10.9 They reached Jerusalem again, and in the temple court as he taught and preached the good news while walking, chief priests and elders came to him and said,  “By what authority do you do these things?”

Jesus replied, “First answer a question, then Ill tell you. Was Johns baptism from God or from men?”

They debated among themselves, saying, “If we say           from God, Jesus will say, Then why didnt you believe him? If we say, From men, we fear the peoples reaction, for they considered John a prophet.” Finally they answered, “We dont know.”

Then Jesus said, “Neither will I answer your question.”
