Jesus Is Mocked

63 (A)Now the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking him as they beat him. 64 (B)They also blindfolded him and kept asking him, (C)“Prophesy! (D)Who is it that struck you?” 65 And they said many other things against him, (E)blaspheming him.

Jesus Before the Council

66 (F)When day came, (G)the assembly of the elders of the people gathered together, both chief priests and scribes. And they led him away to their (H)council, and they (I)said, 67 (J)“If you are (K)the Christ, tell us.” But he said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe, 68 and if I ask you, you will not answer. 69 But from now on the Son of Man shall be seated (L)at the right hand of the power of God.” 70 So they all said, “Are you (M)the Son of God, then?” And he said to them, (N)“You say that I am.” 71 Then they said, “What further testimony do we need? We have heard it ourselves from his own lips.”

20 (A)So they (B)watched him and sent spies, who (C)pretended to be sincere, that they might (D)catch him in something he said, so as to deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction of (E)the governor.

53 As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard and to provoke him to speak about many things, 54 (A)lying in wait for him, (B)to catch him in something he might say.

55 Now the chief priests and the whole council[a] were seeking testimony against Jesus to put him to death, but they found none. 56 (A)For many bore false witness against him, but their testimony (B)did not agree. 57 And some stood up and bore false witness against him, saying, 58 (C)“We heard him say, (D)‘I will destroy this temple (E)that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another, (F)not made with hands.’” 59 Yet even about this their testimony did not agree. 60 And the high priest stood up in the midst and asked Jesus, “Have you no answer to make? What is it that these men testify against you?”[b] 61 But (G)he remained silent and made no answer. (H)Again the high priest asked him, “Are you (I)the Christ, the Son of (J)the Blessed?” 62 And Jesus said, “I am, and (K)you will see the Son of Man (L)seated at the right hand of Power, and (M)coming with the clouds of heaven.” 63 And the high priest (N)tore his garments and said, “What further witnesses do we need? 64 You have heard (O)his blasphemy. What is your decision?” And they (P)all condemned him as (Q)deserving death. 65 (R)And some began (S)to spit on him and (T)to cover his face and to strike him, saying to him, “Prophesy!” And the guards received him (U)with blows.

59 Now the chief priests and the whole council[a] (A)were seeking false testimony against Jesus that they might put him to death, 60 but they found none, (B)though many false witnesses came forward. At last (C)two came forward 61 and said, “This man said, (D)‘I am able to (E)destroy the temple of God, and to rebuild it in three days.’” 62 And the high priest stood up and said, “Have you no answer to make? What is it that these men testify against you?”[b] 63 (F)But Jesus remained silent. (G)And the high priest said to him, (H)“I adjure you by (I)the living God, (J)tell us if you are (K)the Christ, (L)the Son of God.” 64 Jesus said to him, (M)“You have said so. But I tell you, from now on (N)you will see the Son of Man (O)seated at the right hand of Power and (P)coming on the clouds of heaven.” 65 Then the high priest (Q)tore his robes and said, (R)“He has uttered blasphemy. What further witnesses do we need? You have now heard his blasphemy. 66 What is your judgment?” They answered, (S)“He deserves death.” 67 Then (T)they spit in his face (U)and (V)struck him. And some slapped him, 68 saying, “Prophesy to us, you (W)Christ! Who is it that struck you?”
