Question: When was the authority given to Jesus, when Jesus was in flesh or when He was a quickening Spirit?

Answer: Jesus had authority during the days of His flesh. Please keep in mind that Jesus always was the life-giving Spirit. It's just that He began to operate as the life-giving Spirit (as opposed to operating as the Son) on the day of Pentecost. He always possessed all power and authority in His Spirit, but it had to be passed into His flesh once the flesh had come into existence.
