Luke 20:1-6 WBT

1 And it came to pass, [that] on one of those days, as he was teaching the people in the temple, and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon [him], with the elders,
2 And spoke to him, saying, Tell us, By what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority?
3 And he answered and said to them, I will also ask you one thing; and answer me:
4 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or from men?
5 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not?
6 But if we say, From men; all the people will stone us: for they are persuaded that John was a prophet.
