Meanwhile, the chief priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
Jesus answered, "I've spoken openly to the world. I've always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all the Jews gather. I've said nothing in private.21Why ask me? Ask those who heard what I told them. They know what I said."
After Jesus spoke, one of the guards standing there slapped Jesus in the face. "Is that how you would answer the high priest?" he asked.
Jesus replied, "If I speak wrongly, testify about what was wrong. But if I speak correctly, why do you strike me?"
Then Annas sent him, bound, to Caiaphas the high priest.
