57 cAnd those who had laid hold of Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. 58 But dPeter followed Him at a distance to the high priest’s courtyard. And he went in and sat with the servants to see the end.
59 Now the chief priests, 2the elders, and all the council sought efalse testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, 60 3but found none. Even though fmany false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last gtwo 4false witnesses came forward 61 and said, “This fellow said, h‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and to build it in three days.’ ”
62 iAnd the high priest arose and said to Him, “Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?” 63 But jJesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, k“I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!”
They answered and said, p“He is deserving of death.”
