Today's Scripture:Luke 20:1-8;45-47 (New King James Version)
Jesus’ Authority Questioned by chief priests, scribes,and elders. At the end of the chapter Jesus warns His disciples to beware of the Scribes. "Now it happened on one of those days, as He taught the people in the temple and preached the gospel, that the chief priests and the scribes, together with the elders, confronted Him and spoke to Him, saying, “Tell us, by what authority are You doing these things? Or who is he who gave You this authority?” But He answered and said to them, “I also will ask you one thing, and answer Me:The baptism of John—was it from heaven or from men?” And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ He will say, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’ But if we say, ‘From men,’ all the people will stone us, for they are persuaded that John was a prophet.” So they answered that they did not know where it was from. And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”

Beware of the Scribes

Then, in the hearing of all the people, He said to His disciples, “Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.

    One of the questions in our Bible Study was about who was the angel of the Lord in Genesis 16:9 and of course there were all sort of speculations but one really fit, it must have been Jesus Christ because He spoke with all authority.

Thanks for your blog.
