We don’t know, Matthew 21.27

“So they answered Jesus, ‘We don’t know.’ Then he said to them, ‘Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.'”

Matthew 21.27

The Jewish authorities refused to answer Jesus’ question about John the Immerser because either option would put them in a bad position. In this way, our Lord showed their bad faith.

Do I avoid God’s truth by pleading ignorance or doubt? Do I appeal to prayer as a way to lay aside his commandments? Or do I readily embrace the truth that frees?
