Matthew 26:60

Matthew 26:60 In-Context

58 Peter followed at a safe distance until they got to the Chief Priest's courtyard. Then he slipped in and mingled with the servants, watching to see how things would turn out.
59 The high priests, conspiring with the Jewish Council, tried to cook up charges against Jesus in order to sentence him to death.
60 But even though many stepped up, making up one false accusation after another, nothing was believable.
61 with this: "He said, 'I can tear down this Temple of God and after three days rebuild it.'"
62 The Chief Priest stood up and said, "What do you have to say to the accusation?"
