YaHoVa had a 30,000 foot view of His situation on earth. He knew that the Pharisees were easily controlled by Satan. Their plan for Yeshua was easy:
(1) See Miracles.
(2) Ask where the power comes from.
(3) When He answers “from God” get Him to admit He is God.
(4) Kill Him for Blasphemy.
The pharisees did not realize that was their plan. They just knew they were trying to get Him to show that He was certified to perform the miracles He was performing. They wanted Him to show where His certification was from so that they could show that their certification trumped His certification. Satan used the pharisees need to trump His power to edge them closer and closer to killing Him.
