20 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

20 1ONE DAY, as he was teaching the people in the temple and telling them the good news, the priests and lawyers, and the elders with them, came upon him and accosted him.The Authority of Jesus Questioned Lk.20.1-8 Passover, c.30ce (Jerusalem) | Mt.21.23-27 | Mk.11.27-33Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν μιᾷ τῶν ἡμερῶν διδάσκοντος αὐτοῦ τὸν λαὸν ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ καὶ εὐαγγελιζομένου ἐπέστησαν οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς καὶ οἱ γραμματεῖς σὺν τοῖς πρεσβυτέροις,
2'Tell us', they said, 'by what authority you are acting like this; who gave you this authority?' καὶ εἶπαν λέγοντες πρὸς αὐτόν, Εἰπὸν ἡμῖν ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιεῖς, ἢ τίς ἐστιν ὁ δούς σοι τὴν ἐξουσίαν ταύτην.
3He answered them, 'I have a question to ask you too: tell me, ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς, Ἐρωτήσω ὑμᾶς κἀγὼ λόγον, καὶ εἰπατέ μοι·
4was the baptism of John from God or from men?' Τὸ βάπτισμα Ἰωάννου ἐξ οὐρανοῦ ἦν ἢ ἐξ ἀνθρώπων;
5This set them arguing among themselves: 'If we say, "from God", he will say, "Why did you not believe him?" οἱ δὲ συνελογίσαντο πρὸς ἑαυτοὺς λέγοντες ὅτι Ἐὰν εἰπωμεν, Ἐξ οὐρανοῦ, ἐρεῖ, Διὰ τί οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε αὐτῷ;
6And if we say, "from men", the people will all stone us, for they are convinced that John was a prophet.' ἐὰν δὲ εἰπωμεν, Ἐξ ἀνθρώπων, ὁ λαὸς ἀπας καταλιθάσει ἡμᾶς, πεπεισμένος γάρ ἐστιν Ἰωάννην προφήτην εἶναι.
7So they replied that they could not tell. καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν μὴ εἰδέναι πόθεν.
8And Jesus said to them, 'Neither will I tell you by what authority I act.'
 καὶ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Οὐδὲ ἐγὼ λέγω ὑμῖν ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιῶ.
