Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg focuses on Matthew 21:23-27 where Jesus is questioned by the religious leaders about his authority. Gregg relates this to the importance of authority in religious institutions and how it impacts what doctrines are taught. He also explores the complex issue of authority in relation to God and how it can be difficult to determine what is truly from God and what is not. Ultimately, Jesus challenges the religious leaders to recognize the authority of God in their lives and actions.
