Re Carl's quote from Matthew 7:29 (or Mark 1:22?) it is interesting that this EXOUSIA
of Jesus stands in contrast to the question asked at John 7:15 (PWS hOUTOS GRAMMATA
OIDEN MH MEMAQHKWWS). In addition, it is said of some of his foremost Galilean
followers that they were AGRAMMATOI...KAI IDIWTAI (Acts 4:13). Perhaps authority may
derive from being a "scholar," but not entirely so.
