The High Priest Annas questioned Jesus about HIS disciples and about HIS teaching
Jesus answered "I have spoken publicly to everyone all my teaching was done in the synagogues and in the temple where we gather .I have said nothing in secret . Why then do you ask me , Question those who heard me . ask them what I told them they know what I said
One of the guards slapped HIM and said "How dare you talk like that to the High Priest!"
Jesus answered "If I have said anything wrong , tell everyone here what it was . But if I am right in what I have said , why did you hit me ?"
Then Annas sent HIM still tied up, to Caiaphas the High Priest where the teachers of the law and elders had gathered together.The whole Council tried to find some FALSE evidence against Jesus to put HIM to death but they could not find any, even though many people came foreward and told lies about HIM.
Finally two men stepped up and said "This man said 'I am able to tear down God's temple and three days later build it back up'."
The High Priest said "Have you no answer to give to this accusation against you?" Jesus kept quiet . Again he spoke "In the name of the living God I now put you under oath tell us if you are if you are the Messiah , the Son of God."
"I AM " answered Jesus "and you will see the Son of Man seated ant the right side of the Almighty and coming with the clouds of heaven "
The High priest tore his robes and said "We don't need anymore witnesses ! You heard HIS blasphemy . What is your decision? they all voted against HIM .Some of them began to spit on Jesus
and they blindfolded HIM and hit HIM "Guess who hit you"they said and the guards took HIM and slapped HIM
Early in the morning they took HIM to Pilate
