A Restatement of the Gospels

XL. Jesus Goes before the Sanhedrin Court

148. The Private Examination by Annas

        13First they led him to Annas; he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. 14It was Caiaphas who had given counsel to the Jews that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
        19Annas then questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. 20Jesus answered him, “I have spoken openly to the world. I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together. I have said nothing secretly. 21Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me, what I said to them; they know what I said.”
        22When he had said this, one of the officers standing by struck Jesus with his hand, saying, “Is that how you answer the high priest?”
        23Jesus answered him, “If I have spoken wrongly, bear witness to the wrong; but if I have spoken rightly, why do you strike me?”
        24When day came Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas, the high priest; 53and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes were assembled.
