And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say to us, Why did you not then believe him? 26But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet. 27And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said to them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
