The Pharisees challenged His authority. He did not respond. That is interesting.
Jesus claimed authority and gave authority to the twelve, which is listed in 3:15 as one of the reasons He chose them.
This is a relatively big deal. Christ claims authority to forgive sins. He gives authority over unclean spirits.
He validates what He claims by miracles.
The Pharisees got it right in 3:7, only God can forgive sins. What does that say about Christ? Interesting that they missed the lesson.
It makes me wonder what I am missing about Christ’s authority over my life.
