and led Him to 1Annasfirst ; for he was father-in-law of 2Caiaphas, who was highpriest that year.
14NowCaiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that 3it was expedient for oneman to die on behalf of the people.
154SimonPeter was followingJesus, and so was anotherdisciple. Now that disciple was known to the highpriest, and entered with Jesus into 5the court of the highpriest,
166but Peter was standing at the dooroutside. So the otherdisciple, who was known to the highpriest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper, and broughtPeter in.
177Then the slave-girl who kept the doorsaid to Peter, "8You are not also one of thisman'sdisciples, are you?" He said, "I am not."
18Now the slaves and the 9officers were standing there, having made10a charcoalfire, for it was cold and they were 11warming themselves; and Peter was also with them, standing and warming himself.
1912The highpriestthenquestionedJesusabout His disciples, and about His teaching.
20Jesusanswered him, "I 13have spokenopenly to the world ; I always14taught in asynagogues and 15in the temple, whereall the Jewscometogether ; and I spokenothing in secret.21"Why do you question Me? Questionthose who have heardwhat I spoke to them; they knowwhat I said."22
When He had saidthis, one of the 16officersstandingnearby17struckJesus, saying, "Is that the way You answer the highpriest ?"
2318Jesusanswered him, "If I have spokenwrongly, testify of the wrong ; but ifrightly, why do you strike Me?"
