Meanwhile, Peter came to the courtyard of the high priest’s house and went in.

The high priest said, ‘I demand in the name of the living God that you tell us whether you claim to be the Messiah, the Son of God.’ <br/>‘Yes,’ Jesus said, ‘I am.

Then the high priest tore at his own clothing, shouting, ‘Blasphemy! What need have we for other witnesses? You have all heard him say it! What is your verdict?’ <br/>The mob shouted, ‘Death! Death! Death!’ <br/>Then they spat in Jesus’ face and struck him and some slapped him, saying, ‘Prophesy to us, you Messiah! Who struck you that time?’ <br/>(Matthew 26:65-67, Mark 14:63-66, Luke 22:63-64, John 22:2-23). <br/>Maltreatments in the House of Caiaphas - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 7
