21 Revised Standard Version Passage

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.20.1-8
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. 
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?' 
26But if we say, 'From men,' we are afraid of the multitude; for all hold that John was a prophet." 
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.
