After being tempted by the devil in the wilderness, Jesus came out of that wilderness with a driving purpose-to destroy the devil's work. (1 John 3:8) Jesus locked horns with religious leaders who believed that they were working for God. These religious leaders confronted Jesus with a two-part question Jesus never answered. "By what authority are you doing these things? And who gave you this authority?" This question is still awaiting an answer and zeros in on a theme that resonates through the ages. It is the question that will ultimately lead the world to Armageddon.
