Scripture - Matthew 21:23-32
Jesus&rsquo; authority questioned
23 When Jesus entered the temple, the chief priests and elders of the people came to him as he was teaching. They asked, &ldquo;What kind of authority do you have for doing these things? Who gave you this authority?&rdquo;
24 Jesus replied, &ldquo;I have a question for you. If you tell me the answer, I&rsquo;ll tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things. 25 Where did John get his authority to baptize? Did he get it from heaven or from humans?&rdquo;
They argued among themselves, &ldquo;If we say &lsquo;from heaven,&rsquo; he&rsquo;ll say to us, &lsquo;Then why didn&rsquo;t you believe him?&rsquo; 26 But we can&rsquo;t say &lsquo;from humans&rsquo; because we&rsquo;re afraid of the crowd, since everyone thinks John was a prophet.&rdquo; 27 Then they replied, &ldquo;We don&rsquo;t know.&rdquo;
Jesus also said to them, &ldquo;Neither will I tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things.
Parable of two sons
28 &ldquo;What do you think? A man had two sons. Now he came to the first and said, &lsquo;Son, go and work in the vineyard today.&rsquo;
29 &ldquo;&lsquo;No, I don&rsquo;t want to,&rsquo; he replied. But later he changed his mind and went.
30 &ldquo;The father said the same thing to the other son, who replied, &lsquo;Yes, sir.&rsquo; But he didn&rsquo;t go.
31 &ldquo;Which one of these two did his father&rsquo;s will?&rdquo;
They said, &ldquo;The first one.&rdquo;
Jesus said to them, &ldquo;I assure you that tax collectors and prostitutes are entering God&rsquo;s kingdom ahead of you. 32 For John came to you on the righteous road, and you didn&rsquo;t believe him. But tax collectors and prostitutes believed him. Yet even after you saw this, you didn&rsquo;t change your hearts and lives and you didn&rsquo;t believe him.
