Under Whose Authority Are You? Part 2
In John 2:13-22, we encounter what appears to be a fairly aggressive display of authority as Christ “cleanses” the temple, driving out the livestock and overturning the tables of the money changers. Naturally, the temple authorities want to know what gives him the right to call these shots, and they demand a spiritual sign to verify his authority. Despite their indignation, the question of Christ’s authority gets to the heart of his identity, and his magnificent response testifies to this truth. With this in mind, this 3-part series will examine the role of authority in each of our lives and ask the critical question, “Under whose authority are you?” Part 2 considers the consequences of making humanity one’s source of authority.
