Jesus Before the Council
m As soon as it was day, n the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying,
o "If You are the Christ, tell us." But He said to them, "If I tell you, you will p by no means believe.
"And if I also ask you, you will by no means answer Me or let Me go.
q "Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God."
Then they all said, "Are You then the Son of God?" So He said to them, r "You rightly say that I am."
s And they said, "What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth."
