53 kAnd they led Jesus away to the high priest; and with him were lassembled all the mchief priests, the elders, and the scribes. 54 But nPeter followed Him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest. And he sat with the servants and warmed himself at the fire.
57 Then some rose up and bore false witness against Him, saying, 58 “We heard Him say, q‘I will destroy this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.’ ” 59 But not even then did their testimony agree.
tAgain the high priest asked Him, saying to Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?”
62 Jesus said, “I am. uAnd you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.”
63 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, “What further need do we have of witnesses? 64 You have heard the vblasphemy! What do you think?”
And they all condemned Him to be deserving of wdeath.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
