Matthew 21:23-32

Although this passage is interesting, I am not sure how much the Greek illumines it. The word for authority is "exousia," which relates to being but often just means power or ability to do something.

Perhaps one small connection is that the word for "will" (vs 31) is the noun form of the verb in Philippians where God is the one at work so that we might will/want to do things for his good pleasure.
