The authority of Jesus

Adobe Acrobat

In the temple in Jerusalem, Jesus was asked about his authority. Who was he, and who sent him? But Jesus showed that the real question was - did those asking him actually want to know? They did not, because the truth would cost them too much. Jesus does not only unite, but divides. But what the leaders of Israel did not want to see, the common people did, and rejoiced in, as the truth set them free. Which side of the divide are you on?
