Jesus' Authority Questioned

1 On one of the days while He was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders confronted Him,
Kai; {CONJ} ejgevneto {V-2ADI-3S} ejn {PREP} mia'/ {N-DSF} tw'n {T-GPF} hJmerw'n {N-GPF} didavskonto? {V-PAP-GSM} aujtou' {P-GSM} to;n {T-ASM} lao;n {N-ASM} ejn {PREP} tw'/ {T-DSN} iJerw'/ {N-DSN} kai; {CONJ} eujaggelizomevnou {V-PMP-GSM} ejpevsthsan {V-2AAI-3P} oiJ {T-NPM} ajrcierei'? {N-NPM} kai; {CONJ} oiJ {T-NPM} grammatei'? {N-NPM} su;n {PREP} toi'? {T-DPM} presbutevroi?, {A-DPM}
2 and they spoke, saying to Him, "Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?"
