As morning came, the elders of the people, both chief priests and legal experts, came together, and Jesus was brought before their council.
They said, "If you are the Christ, tell us!" He answered, "If I tell you, you won't believe.68 And if I ask you a question, you won't answer.69 But from now on, the Human Oneawill be seated on the right side of the power of God."b70
They all said, "Are you God's Son, then?" He replied, "You say that I am."
Then they said, "Why do we need further testimony? We've heard it from his own lips."
