Luke 20:3-4

3-4Jesus answered, "First, let me ask you a question: About the baptism of John—who authorized it, heaven or humans?"

5-7They were on the spot, and knew it. They pulled back into a huddle and whispered, "If we say 'heaven,' he'll ask us why we didn't believe him; if we say 'humans,' the people will tear us limb from limb, convinced as they are that John was God's prophet." They agreed to concede that round to Jesus and said they didn't know.
