Luke 20:1-6 NRS

1 One day, as he was teaching the people in the temple and telling the good news, the chief priests and the scribes came with the elders
2 and said to him, "Tell us, by what authority are you doing these things? Who is it who gave you this authority?"
3 He answered them, "I will also ask you a question, and you tell me:
4 Did the baptism of John come from heaven, or was it of human origin?"
5 They discussed it with one another, saying, "If we say, "From heaven,' he will say, "Why did you not believe him?'
6 But if we say, "Of human origin,' all the people will stone us; for they are convinced that John was a prophet."
