They were astounded at His teachings, for He taught them as one having authority- Mark 1:22
There is a difference between power and authority. Jesus held no earthly office and hence may have had ‘no power’ but what He did have was authority which those with earthly powers do not have.
The Church, reflecting Christ, must been heard as speaking with authority not flexing its muscles of power.
