Jesus' Authority Challenged

26 But if we say, 'from men,' we are afraid the crowd will oppose us because they all consider John to be a prophet." 27 So, they answered Jesus, "We do not know [where John got the authority for his immersion]." Jesus then replied to them, "[Then] neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things [i.e., miracles and teaching]. 28 But what do you think [about this]? A man had two sons; He went to the first one and said, 'Son, go to work in my vineyard today.'
