one that had authority
1:22 one that had authority. See also Matthew 7:29. Jesus never guessed, expressed an opinion, or suggested a possible interpretation of Scripture. Everything He taught was with absolute authority, for He was the very Word of God (John 1:1, 14). Never did He need to retract anything He said; never did He leave unsaid anything He should have said. “Never man spake like this man” (John 7:46).
