Jesus went into the temple and upon his arriving he began to teach. The teaching at this point we don’t know about what Jesus was teaching. The chief priests and the elders don’t like what he is teaching and so they question Jesus, “by what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” Because they had their perspective in mind and not God. Jesus asks a question he later answers, “The baptism of John, from where did it come? From heaven or from man?” They are afraid to answer so they say they don’t know.
Jesus tells a parable of two sons demonstrating the actions and not the words true example of faithfulness. It is also a parable of changing of minds and hearts.
Jesus tells the chief priests that even prostitutes and tax collectors will go into the kingdom of God before them. Why? They believed John came in the way of righteousness. He was connected to Jesus and was preparing the way for “The Way.” Jesus tell them even after they saw John and had proof, they did not believe.
What do you believe about Jesus? Do you believe he is God’s Son and a righteous Savior? It’s not too late to change your mind.
