And they said to him, “By what authority are you doing these things, or who gave you this authority to do them?” Jesus said to them, “I will ask you one question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. Was the baptism of John from heaven or from man? Answer me.” And they discussed it with one another, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’ But shall we say, ‘From man’?”—they were afraid of the people, for they all held that John really was a prophet. So they answered Jesus, “We do not know.” And Jesus said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”
Are you skeptical by nature? There’s nothing wrong with that, just don’t let that get in the way of following Jesus. He is not a dancing monkey doing tricks for us. He has already been so gracious to prove to humanity who he is… why do we demand even more? He is already the most attested to figure of ancient history, what else do we need? Do you find yourself believing there’s just not enough evidence? He doesn’t need you, you need him. Trust him today.
