A Divine Counselor speaks with unchallengeable authority. He has enjoyed many times the supreme pleasure of a sojourn in the immediate personal presence of the Universal Father, and he knows whereof he speaks.  Jesus spoke with undoubted confidence and taught with absolute authority.  There is no division of authority; never is there a cross working of divine power and purpose.  We must not forget, to understand many events of Jesus life, that authority was the watchword of all Jewry.
