We live in a day where authority is routinely rejected. This, however, as King Solomon would say, is nothing new under the Sun. A basic reading of Scripture shows that humanity has rejected the proper authority over them since the very beginning. Rejection of the proper authority in our lives goes as far back as the Garden!
Our text this week is a look at a text where those who didn't like Jesus' message questioned his authority in even bringing it. The question we should wrestle with is if we likewise reject the authority in our life simply because we don't like the message.
