19 1When evening came, they would go out of the city.
20 2As they were passing by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up.
21 Being reminded, Peter said to Him, "3Rabbi, look, the fig tree which You cursed has withered."
22 And Jesus answered saying to them, "4Have faith in God.
23 "5Truly I say to you, whoever * says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.
24 "Therefore * I say to you, 6all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.
26 ["9But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions."]

Jesus' Authority Questioned

27 They came again to Jerusalem. 10And as He was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders came to Him,
28 and began saying to Him, "By what authority are You doing these things, or who gave You this authority to do these things?"
29 And Jesus said to them, "I will ask you one question, and you answer Me, and then I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
30 "Was the baptism of John from heaven, or from men? Answer Me."
31 They began reasoning among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say, 'Then why * did you not believe him?'
32 "But shall we say, 'From men '?"-they were afraid of the people, for everyone considered John to have been a real prophet.
33 Answering Jesus, they said, "We do not know." And Jesus said to them, "Nor will I tell you by what authority I do these things."
