Time and time again the authority of Jesus is challenged by the religious leaders. But each time, His wisdom and grace are seen through His words and actions. He taught us the importance of fruitfulness in the lesson of the barren fig tree. Jesus revealed His authority as He rode into Jerusalem and was worshipped as the Messiah, and when He overturned the tables of the money-changers in the Temple. He healed a blind man who had a clear vision of Jesus, even without his sight.
