Mark 11:27-33; Luke 20:1-8

27 They went back into Yerushalayim; and as he was walking in the Temple courts, there came to him the head cohanim, the Torah-teachers and the elders; 28 and they said to him, "What s'mikhah do you have that authorizes you to do these things? Who gave you this s'mikhah authorizing you to do them?" 29 Yeshua said to them, "I will ask you just one question: answer me, and I will tell you by what s'mikhah I do these things. 30 The immersion of Yochanan -- was it from Heaven or from a human source? Answer me." 31 They discussed it among themselves: "If we say, `From Heaven,' he will say, `Then why didn't you believe him?' 32 But if we say, `From a human source, . . . '" -- they were afraid of the people, for they all regarded Yochanan as a genuine prophet. 33 So they answered Yeshua, "We don't know." "Then," he replied, "I won't tell you by what s'mikhah I do these things."
1 One day, as Yeshua was teaching the people at the Temple, making known the Good News, the head cohanim and the Torah-teachers, along with the elders, came up to him 2 and said, "Tell us, what s'mikhah do you have that authorizes you to do these things? Who gave you this s'mikhah?" 3 He answered, "I too will ask you a question. Tell me, 4 the immersion of Yochanan -- was it from Heaven or from a human source?" T 5 hey discussed it among themselves, saying, "If we say, `From Heaven,' he will say, `Then why didn't you believe him?' 6 But if we say, `From a human source,' all the people will stone us, because they're convinced that Yochanan was a prophet." 7 So they answered, "We don't know where it came from." 8 Yeshua said to them, "Then I won't tell you by what s'mikhah I do these things."
