Session 6.39 for September 28, 2014
In today's lesson, some of the priests challenge Jesus and try to back him into a corner by asking him about the authority that allows him to teach as he does. Jesus, recognizing that they were asking him a question in which they could not be satisfied by any answer, refuses to answer and instead, asks his own question of a similar nature. They realized Jesus can play their game and also refuse to answer. So, as he is apt to do, Jesus tells a parable. In the parable, Jesus suggests that there are those who look like they follow God, when they do not.
