Peter Is Afraid to Say He Knows Jesus
54They arrested Jesus and took him away. They brought Jesus into the house of the
high priest.* Peter followed them, but he did not come near Jesus. 55The soldiers
started a fire in the middle of the yard and sat together. Peter sat with them.
56A servant girl saw Peter sitting there. She could see because of the light from
the fire. The girl looked closely at Peter's face. Then she said, "This man was
also with him (Jesus)!" 57But Peter said this was not true. He said, "Lady, I don't
know him." 58A short time later, another person saw Peter and said, "You are also
one of those people [that follow him (Jesus)." But Peter said, "Man, I am not one
of his followers!" 59About an hour later, another man said, "It is true! This man
was with him (Jesus). He is from Galilee!" The man said he was sure about this.
60But Peter said, "Man, I don't know what you are talking about!" Immediately, while
Peter was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 61Then the Lord (Jesus) turned and looked
into Peter's eyes. And Peter remembered what the Lord had said: "Before the rooster
crows in the morning, you will say three times that you don't know me." 62Then Peter
went outside and cried bitterly.
The People Laugh at Jesus
63-64Some men were holding (guarding) Jesus. They made fun of Jesus like this: They
covered his eyes so that he could not see them. Then they hit him and said, "Be
a prophet* and tell us who hit you!" 65The men said many very bad things to Jesus.
Jesus Before the Jewish Leaders
66The next morning, the older leaders of the people, the leading priests, and the
teachers of the law came together. They led Jesus away to their highest court. 67They
said, "If you are the Christ,* then tell us that you are!" Jesus said to them, "If
I tell you I am the Christ, you will not believe me. 68And if I ask you, you will
not answer. 69But beginning now, the Son of Man* will sit at the right side of God's
throne." 70They all said, "Then are you the Son of God?" Jesus said to them, "Yes,
you are right when you say that I am." 71They said, "Why do we need witnesses now?
We ourselves heard him say this!"
