Authority, Obedience, and Grace

After Jesus had cleansed the temple, the chief priests and other religious leaders demanded to know who gave him the authority to do so. In response, Jesus asked them about the source of John’s baptism and told them a story about the difference between saying you’ll do something and actually doing it. He then compared  their obedience with that of  tax collectors and prostitutes. Who had really obeyed God? Who would take the truth about God to the World?
