Religious Leaders Question Jesus’ Authority: Day 3 Holy Week Reading Plan


The chief religous leaders began challenging Jesus’ authority. However, their plan backfired as Jesus turned the questions on them.

Jesus knew their hearts just like He knows our hearts. Therefore, Jesus knew what to say that would make the leaders realize He knew their true identities, which in turn confirmed His deity.

As we read today’s scripture, let’s consider these questions:

Jesus knows our hearts. What does He really see within us?

Are we like those leaders, religious on the outside and hard hearted on the inside? Or does Jesus see His Light within us?

Do others see Jesus shining from within us and in our lives?
