Why did Jesus answer their question with a question? Why didn`t he just say that his authority came from God?
i think jesus answered the question by another question because he knew they were trying to trap him with the question, and also because he didnt want to come out and tell them i am the son of god , he wanted them to find out on their own , that way their faith would come from within themselves, it would be faith based on personal experience.

I think that Jesus answer their question withe a question because He Knew them and their hypocrisy , they are traying to trap him Jesus knew they worshp him in vain , their teaching are but rules taught by man, they have let go of the commmands of God and are holding the traditions of men therefor they w illrefuse him and his words.

Jesus Christ has no pride, he was humbled, he wanted them to find out themselves by seeing his doings.

The Authority of Jesus Questioned
Jesus answered their question with a question. He very much known about the aim behind the question. They always wanted to caught Jesus in words. Here, Jesus responded in the same manner, ie. with a question, which was so confusing to them. They questioned the authority of Jesus. He wanted the people to show through His deeds, that His authority came from God. He showed compassion towards the needy. He showered His grace to those who had cried for their deliverance.

The Authority of Jesus Questioned
Jesus was not answered directly their question because He knew it is useless. Because this people are not accepting Him or believe Him as the coming Messiah, even such proof He made, by doing miracle He made at thier presence. Instead He used a wise way to answer their question by asking question of John`s authority because He knew that by acknowledging John as His forerunner and the one who prepare Him of His coming. They must also of necessity of receiving Him as the Messiah.

The Authority of Jesus Questioned

They came again to Jerusalem, and as he was walking in the temple, the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders came to him, and they began saying to him, "By what authority do you do these things? Or who gave you this authority to do these things?"
Jesus said to them, "I will ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. The baptism of John--was it from heaven, or from men? Answer me."
They reasoned with themselves, saying, "If we should say, 'From heaven;' he will say, 'Why then did you not believe him?' If we should say, 'From men'"--they feared the people, for all held John to really be a prophet. They answered Jesus, "We don't know."
Jesus said to them, "Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things."
