Jesus before Caiaphas

57 (A)Those who had seized Jesus led Him away to (B)Caiaphas, the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. 58 But (C)Peter was following Him at a distance as far as the (D)courtyard of the high priest, and entered in, and sat down with the [a](E)officers to see the outcome.

59 Now the chief priests and the whole [b](F)Council kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, so that they might put Him to death. 60 They did not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on (G)two came forward, 61 and said, “This man stated, ‘(H)I am able to destroy the [c]temple of God and to rebuild it [d]in three days.’” 62 The high priest stood up and said to Him, “Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?” 63 But (I)Jesus kept silent. (J)And the high priest said to Him, “I [e](K)adjure You by (L)the living God, that You tell us whether You are [f]the Christ, (M)the Son of God.” 64 Jesus *said to him, (N)You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, [g]hereafter you will see (O)the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and (P)coming on the clouds of heaven.”

65 Then the high priest (Q)tore his [h]robes and said, “He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, you have now heard the blasphemy; 66 what do you think?” They answered, “(R)He deserves death!”

67 (S)Then they (T)spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others [i]slapped Him, 68 and said, “(U)Prophesy to us, You [j]Christ; who is the one who hit You?”

Jesus before His Accusers

53 (A)They led Jesus away to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes *gathered together. 54 Peter had followed Him at a distance, (B)right into (C)the courtyard of the high priest; and he was sitting with the [a]officers and (D)warming himself at the [b]fire. 55 Now the chief priests and the whole [c](E)Council kept trying to obtain testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, and they were not finding any. 56 For many were giving false testimony against Him, but their testimony was not consistent. 57 Some stood up and began to give false testimony against Him, saying, 58 “We heard Him say, ‘(F)I will destroy this [d]temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands.’” 59 Not even in this respect was their testimony consistent. 60 The high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, “Do You not answer? [e]What is it that these men are testifying against You?” 61 (G)But He kept silent and did not answer. (H)Again the high priest was questioning Him, and [f]saying to Him, “Are You [g]the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?” 62 And Jesus said, “I am; and you shall see (I)the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and (J)coming with the clouds of heaven.” 63 (K)Tearing his clothes, the high priest *said, “What further need do we have of witnesses? 64 You have heard the (L)blasphemy; how does it seem to you?” And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death. 65 Some began to (M)spit at Him, and [h](N)to blindfold Him, and to beat Him with their fists, and to say to Him, “(O)Prophesy!” And the officers [i]received Him with [j]slaps in the face.

Jesus’ Arrest

54 (A)Having arrested Him, they led Him away and brought Him to the house of the high priest; but (B)Peter was following at a distance. 55 (C)After they had kindled a fire in the middle of (D)the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter was sitting among them. 56 And a servant-girl, seeing him as he sat in the firelight and looking intently at him, said, “This man was with Him too.” 57 But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know Him.” 58 A little later, (E)another saw him and said, “You are one of them too!” But Peter said, “Man, I am not!” 59 After about an hour had passed, another man began to insist, saying, “Certainly this man also was with Him, (F)for he is a Galilean too.” 60 But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 61 (G)The Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had told him, (H)Before a rooster crows today, you will deny Me three times.” 62 And he went out and wept bitterly.

63 (I)Now the men who were holding [a]Jesus in custody were mocking Him and beating Him, 64 and they blindfolded Him and were asking Him, saying, “(J)Prophesy, who is the one who hit You?” 65 And they were saying many other things against Him, (K)blaspheming.
