21 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

23And when he entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came up to him as he was teaching, and said, "By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?"The Authority of Jesus Questioned Mt.21.23-27 (Jerusalem) | Mk.11.27-33 | Lk.20.1-8Καὶ ἐλθόντος αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ ἱερὸν προσῆλθον αὐτῷ διδάσκοντι οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ λαοῦ λέγοντες, Ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιεῖς; καὶ τίς σοι ἐδωκεν τὴν ἐξου σίαν ταύτην;
24Jesus answered them, "I also will ask you a question; and if you tell me the answer, then I also will tell you by what authority I do these things. ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Ἐρωτήσω ὑμᾶς κἀγὼ λόγον ἑνα, ὃν ἐὰν εἰπητέ μοι κἀγὼ ὑμῖν ἐρῶ ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιῶ·
25The baptism of John, whence was it? From heaven or from men?" And they argued with one another, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will say to us, 'Why then did you not believe him?' τὸ βάπτισμα τὸ Ἰωάννου πόθεν ἦν; ἐξ οὐρανοῦ ἢ ἐξ ἀνθρώπων; οἱ δὲ διελογίζοντο ἐν ἑαυτοῖς λέγοντες, Ἐὰν εἰπωμεν, Ἐξ οὐρανοῦ, ἐρεῖ ἡμῖν, Διὰ τί οὖν οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε αὐτῷ;
26But if we say, 'From men,' we are afraid of the multitude; for all hold that John was a prophet." ἐὰν δὲ εἰπωμεν, Ἐξ ἀνθρώπων, φοβούμεθα τὸν ὀχλον, πάντες γὰρ ὡς προφήτην ἐχουσιν τὸν Ἰωάννην.
27So they answered Jesus, "We do not know." And he said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things. καὶ ἀποκριθέντες τῷ Ἰησοῦ εἶπαν, Οὐκ οἰδαμεν. ἐφη αὐτοῖς καὶ αὐτός, Οὐδὲ ἐγὼ λέγω ὑμῖν ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιῶ.
