The Judgement of the Jews
They reject the Mesia
Mat 26:57 And they that had taken Jesus led him away to the house of Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together.
Mat 26:58 But Peter followed him afar off, unto the court of the high priest, and entered in, and sat with the officers, to see the end.
Mat 26:59 Now the chief priests and the whole council sought false witness against Jesus, that they might put him to death;
Mat 26:60 and they found it not, though many false witnesses came. But afterward came two,
Mat 26:61 and said, This man said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
Mat 26:62 And the high priest stood up, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
Mat 26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou art the Christ, the Son of God.
Mat 26:64 Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Henceforth ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.
Mat 26:65 Then the high priest rent his garments, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy: what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard the blasphemy:
Mat 26:66 what think ye? They answered and said, He is worthy of death.
Mat 26:67 Then did they spit in his face and buffet him: and some smote him with the palms of their hands,
Mat 26:68 saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ: who is he that struck thee?
