Mark 11:27-33

“By what authority…?” is more than a question posed by the Jewish leaders. It is a challenge. They have been publicly chastised in the temple. They are ready to disprove what he has said and done. Once again Jesus responds with a question that silences his opponents.

There are so many who doubt you, your church, and all who believe. I pray that they stop questioning and start listening.
