By What Authority do You do These Things?
When Yeshua visited Jerusalem for a Passover celebration after He began His ministry, He threw the moneychangers and merchants out of the temple asserting His authority over the House of God. The Jewish leaders asked Him for a sign that what He did was from God. Yeshua wasn’t concerned at that time with convincing them that God had sent Him. After a time in in Galilee, Yeshua was back in Jerusalem for another Feast of the LORD. This time Yeshua would assert His authority over the observance of the Sabbath. How does Yeshua explain the source of His authority? Why did He choose the Sabbath to make His point?
