And as soon as it was day, the assembly of the elders of the people was gathered together, both chief priests and scribes; and they led him away into their council, saying,
If thou art the Christ, tell us. But he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:68and if I ask [you], ye will not answer.69But from henceforth shall the Son of man be seated at the right hand of the power of God.70
And they all said, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.71
And they said, What further need have we of witness? for we ourselves have heard from his own mouth.
