10. Judged by the Sanhedrin

57 aAnd those who seized Jesus led Him away to bCaiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders had gathered.

58 And Peter afollowed Him at a distance to the courtyard of the high priest; and entering within, he sat with the attendants to see the end.

59 Now the chief priests and the whole aSanhedrin were seeking bfalse testimony against Jesus so that they might put Him to death,

60 And they did not find it, though many false witnesses came forward. But later atwo came

61 And said, This man said, 1I am able to adestroy the temple of God and build it up in three days.

62 And the high priest stood up and said to Him, Do You answer 1anothing? What is it that these testify bagainst You?

63 But Jesus remained 1asilent. bAnd the high priest said to Him, I charge You to cswear by the living God to tell us 2dif You are the eChrist, the Son of God.

64 Jesus said to him, aYou have said rightly. Nevertheless I say to you, From now on you will see the 1bSon of Man csitting at the right hand of Power and dcoming on the eclouds of heaven.

65 Then the high priest atore his garments, saying, He has bblasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard the blasphemy.

66 What do you think? And they answered and said, He is worthy of adeath.

67 Then they aspat in His face and beat Him with their fists, and others bslapped Him,

68 Saying, 1Prophesy to us, Christ! aWho is the one who hit You?
