Mark 11:27-33

The religious leaders were angry at Jesus because of what He said and did, and
were determined to destroy Him (v18). But first, they had to get enough evidence to bring
charges against Him. It was all a question of authority (v28-29, 33). What right did Jesus
have to cleanse the temple, and call it His house? He was claiming to be God! What
Jesus does, is that He takes them back three years, when John the Baptist was ministering
to the people, asking them whether John’s authority was from God or from men. This
presents the religious with a dilemma, because regardless of how they answered, they
could not win. The reality is that these leaders had not submitted to John’s authority,
which meant that they were not ready to accept Jesus’ authority and to trust Him.
