Luke 20:1-6 GNT

1 One day when Jesus was in the Temple teaching the people and preaching the Good News, the chief priests and the teachers of the Law, together with the elders, came
2 and said to him, "Tell us, what right do you have to do these things? Who gave you such right?"
3 Jesus answered them, "Now let me ask you a question. Tell me,
4 did John's right to baptize come from God or from human beings?"
5 They started to argue among themselves, "What shall we say? If we say, "From God,' he will say, "Why, then, did you not believe John?'
6 But if we say, "From human beings,' this whole crowd here will stone us, because they are convinced that John was a prophet."
