Luke 20:1-6 CJB

1 One day, as Yeshua was teaching the people at the Temple, making known the Good News, the head cohanim and the Torah-teachers, along with the elders, came up to him
2 and said, "Tell us, what s'mikhah do you have that authorizes you to do these things? Who gave you this s'mikhah?"
3 He answered, "I too will ask you a question. Tell me,
4 the immersion of Yochanan -- was it from Heaven or from a human source?" T
5 hey discussed it among themselves, saying, "If we say, `From Heaven,' he will say, `Then why didn't you believe him?'
6 But if we say, `From a human source,' all the people will stone us, because they're convinced that Yochanan was a prophet."
