By What Authority?

During the week prior to Jesus being crucified on the cross, He taught in the temple and had done many miracles. The question that the priests and the elders asked was “by who’s authority are you doing these things.” It was by this same authority that Jesus would fulfill the righteous requirement of the law.
Scripture Reference
Matthew 21:23
And 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?”
Action Point
Remember that all Jesus did was under the authority of the Father, and it is under His authority that we are called to do God’s will.
