Evanghelia Zilei

In vremea aceea a venit iarasi Iisus in Ierusalim. Si in timp ce umbla prin templu, au venit la El arhiereii, carturarii si batranii si I-au zis: „Cu ce putere c faci tu acestea? Sau cine ti-a dat tie aceasta putere de a le face?“ Iar Iisus le-a zis: „Va voi intreba si Eu un cuvant; raspundeti-Mi, si va voi spune si Eu cu ce putere fac acestea: Botezul lui Ioan, din cer a fost, sau de la oameni? Raspundeti-Mi!“ Si ei se chibzuiau intre ei, zicand: „Daca noi vom zice: Din cer!, El va spune: Atunci, de ce nu i-ati dat crezare?; dar de vom zice: De la oameni...“. Se temeau de multime, fiindca toti socoteau ca Ioan a fost cu adevarat profet. Si raspunzand, I-au zis: „Nu stim...“. Si Iisus le-a zis: „Nici Eu nu va spun cu ce putere fac acestea!...“. (Marcu 11, 27-33)

The Daily Gospel

At that time, Jesus came again to Jerusalem. And as he was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders came to him, and they said to him, "By what authority are you doing these things, or who gave you this authority to do them?" Jesus said to them, "I will ask you a question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men? Answer me." And they argued with one another, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will say, 'Why then did you not believe him?' But shall we say, 'From men'?" — they were afraid of the people, for all held that John was a real prophet. So they answered Jesus, "We do not know." And Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things." (Mark 11:27-33)
