Matthew 21:23-27 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Jesus’ Authority Challenged

23 Then Yeshua went into the temple courtyard and began to teach. The chief priests and the leaders of the people came to him. They asked, “What gives you the right to do these things? Who told you that you could do this?”

24 Yeshua answered them, “I, too, have a question for you. If you answer it for me, I’ll tell you why I have the right to do these things. 25 Did John’s right to baptize come from heaven or from humans?”

They discussed this among themselves. They said, “If we say, ‘from heaven,’ he will ask us, ‘Then why didn’t you believe him?’ 26 But if we say, ‘from humans,’ we’re afraid of what the crowd might do. All those people think of John as a prophet.” 27 So they answered Yeshua, “We don’t know.”

Yeshua told them, “Then I won’t tell you why I have the right to do these things.

Luke 20:1-8 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Jesus’ Authority Challenged

20 One day Yeshua was teaching the people in the temple courtyard and telling them the Good News. The chief priests, the experts in Moses’ Teachings, and the leaders came up to him. They asked him, “Tell us, what gives you the right to do these things? Who told you that you could do this?”

Yeshua answered them, “I, too, have a question for you. Tell me, did John’s right to baptize come from heaven or from humans?”

They talked about this among themselves. They said, “If we say, ‘from heaven,’ he will ask, ‘Why didn’t you believe him?’ But if we say, ‘from humans,’ everyone will stone us to death. They’re convinced that John was a prophet.” So they answered that they didn’t know who gave John the right to baptize.

Yeshua told them, “Then I won’t tell you why I have the right to do these things.”
