Luke 20:1-6 GW

1 One day Jesus was teaching the people in the temple courtyard and telling them the Good News. The chief priests, scribes, and leaders came up to him.
2 They asked him, "Tell us, what gives you the right to do these things? Who told you that you could do this?"
3 Jesus answered them, "I, too, have a question for you. Tell me,
4 did John's right to baptize come from heaven or from humans?"
5 They talked about this among themselves. They said, "If we say, 'from heaven,' he will ask, 'Why didn't you believe him?'
6 But if we say, 'from humans,' everyone will stone us to death. They're convinced that John was a prophet."
