S1:E40 EPISODE SUMMARY

In this episode, Adam and Lindsey discuss Matthew 21: 23- 32.

Adam and Lindsey and friends talk about what authority is, how John the Baptist and Jesus both challenged established authorities without using violence, and why prostitutes and tax collectors are first in the Kingdom of God!
