Shema Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is One! Blessed be the name of His glorious kingdom, forever and ever. Amein.
Matthew 26:51-56 One of the people with Yeshua drew his sword, struck the slave servant of the chief priest and cut off his ear. “Put away your sword!” Yeshua exclaimed. “People who take up the sword are killed by the sword! Hasn’t it occurred to you that I can pray right now to my Father, and he will provide me with more than 12 army divisions each of 600 Messengers?
But then how would the Scriptures be fulfilled? It has to happen like this!” Then Yeshua said to the crowds, “You’ve come to arrest me with swords and clubs as if I’m a robber! I was sitting with you day after day, teaching in the temple, and you didn’t arrest me! But this whole thing was done to fulfill the prophetic writings!” At that point all the disciples left him and ran away.
John 18:4-11 Yeshua knew everything that was going to happen to him. He went out and asked them, “Who are you looking for?” They answered, “Yeshua of Nazareth.” “That’s me!” Yeshua replied. Judas, who betrayed him, was standing there with them. When Yeshua said, “That’s me!” they went backwards and fell to the ground.
Yeshua asked them again, “Who are you looking for?” “Yeshua of Nazareth,” they said. Yeshua answered, “I’ve already told you that it’s me! So, since I’m the one you’re looking for, let these ones go home.” This was so that the scripture would be fulfilled, “None of them has been lost.”
Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and hit the chief priest’s slave servant, and cut off his right ear. (The slave servant’s name was Malchos.) Yeshua said to Peter, “Put your sword back in its scabbard! Do you think there’s any way I’m going to avoid the suffering that the Father has assigned me!”
Mark 14:53-65 They took Yeshua away to the chief priest. All the chief priests, the elders and the Bible scholars were assembling. Peter followed him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the chief priest. He was sitting with the servants and warming himself in front of the fire.
Now the chief priests and the whole council were looking for evidence against Yeshua so they could have him put to death, but they couldn’t find any. Lots of people gave false evidence against him, but their stories didn’t agree. Then some of them got up and gave false evidence against him.
They said, “We heard him say, ‘I will destroy this human-built temple and will build another one in three days, one that hasn’t been made by people.’” But even then their stories didn’t agree. Then the chief priest stood up before the assembly and asked Yeshua, “Aren’t you going to answer any of the charges these people are bringing against you?”
But Yeshua kept quiet and didn’t answer at all. The chief priest again questioned him, “So you’re the Anointed One, the Son of the Blessed One?” “Yes, I am!” Yeshua answered. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right side of the Power and coming with the clouds of the sky!”
But the chief priest ripped his shirt as a formal act of judgment and said, “Who needs more witnesses! You’ve heard the blasphemy! What do you think?” They all condemned Yeshua as liable to the death penalty. Then some of them started spitting at him. They blindfolded him and kept beating him up. They were saying, “Prophesy!” The temple police took him and slapped him around.
Matthew 26:57-61 Then the people who’d arrested Yeshua took him off to Caiaphas the chief priest, to an assembly of the Bible scholars and the elders. Peter was following Yeshua at a distance to the chief priest’s courtyard. He went inside and sat with the attendants to see how it would all turn out. The chief priests and the whole council tried to find some false evidence against Yeshua so they could put him to death.
They couldn’t find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. At last two came forward and said, “He said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and build it in three days.’”
Luke 22:63-65 The men who were in charge of Yeshua started making fun of him and beating him up. They blindfolded him and kept demanding, “Prophesy! Who was the one who hit you!” They also said lots of other insulting things to him.
Luke 22:66-71 At daybreak the council of elders of the people, the chief priests as well as the Bible scholars met together and had Yeshua brought to the council chamber. They said, “Tell us whether you’re the Anointed One.” “If I tell you, you won’t believe me!” Yeshua said.
“If I asked you anything, you wouldn’t answer! From now on, the Son of Man will sit at the right side of the Power of God.” They all said, “So are you then the Son of God?” “You’ve said it right!” Yeshua exclaimed. Then they said, “Who needs any more evidence? We’ve heard it ourselves from his very own mouth!”
Matthew 26:62-68 The chief priest got up and asked Yeshua, “Aren’t you going to answer these allegations?” Yeshua kept silent. The chief priest said, “I put you under oath by the living God to tell us whether you are the Anointed One, the Son of God.”
“You said it!” Yeshua replied. “And what’s more, after this you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power and coming in the clouds of the sky.” Then the chief priest ripped his shirt as a formal act of judgment and exclaimed, “He has blasphemed! We don’t need any more witnesses! Now you’ve heard his blasphemy! What do you think?”
“He deserves the death penalty!” they answered. Then they spat in his face and beat him up and others slapped him around. “Prophesy to us, Anointed One! Who’s the one who hit you?” they taunted.
John 18:12-14 Then the army detachment, captain, and officers of the Jews arrested Yeshua and tied him up. They hauled him off to Annas first, as he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was the chief priest that year. Caiaphas was the one who had advised the people that it was a good idea if one person died on behalf of the people.
John 18:19-24 Meanwhile, the chief priest questioned Yeshua about his disciples and his teaching. Yeshua answered, “I have spoken with the right of freedom of speech, openly, plainly and freely to the world. I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where all the Jews met.
I didn’t say anything in secret. So why question me? Ask the ones who heard me. Surely they’ll know what I said!” When Yeshua said this, one of the nearby officials slapped him across the face, and exclaimed, “Is this the way you answer the chief priest!”
Yeshua responded, “If I said something wrong, produce evidence of it! But if I spoke the truth, then why did you belt me one?” Then Annas sent him, tied up, to Caiaphas the chief priest.
