Jesus is showing the pharisees that the Messiah they are waiting for cannot logically be a follower of David.
But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars.

The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.
Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. Luke tells us that Jesus was about 30 years old when he began his ministry.
