A certain servant girl saw him as he sat in the light, and looking intently at him, said, "This man also was with him."
He denied Yeshua, saying, "Woman, I don't know him."
After a little while someone else saw him, and said, "You also are one of them!" But Kefa answered, "Man, I am not!"
After about one hour passed, another confidently affirmed, saying, "Truly this man also was with him, for he is a Gelili!"
But Kefa said, "Man, I don't know what you are talking about!" Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.
The Lord turned, and looked at Kefa. Kefa remembered the Lord's word, how he said to him, "Before the rooster crows you will deny me three times."
He went out, and wept bitterly.
The men who held Yeshua mocked him and beat him.
Having blindfolded him, they struck him on the face and asked him, "Prophesy! Who is the one who struck you?"
They spoke many other things against him, insulting him.
As soon as it was day, the assembly of the Zakenim of the people was gathered together, both chief Kohanim and Sofrim, and they led him away into their council, saying,
"If you are the Messiah, tell us." But he said to them, "If I tell you, you won't believe,
and if I ask, you will in no way answer me or let me go.
From now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God."
They all said, "Are you then the Son of God?" He said to them, "You say it, because I AM."
They said, "Why do we need any more witness? For we ourselves have heard from his own mouth!"
