The High Priest Questions Jesus
"I have spoken openly to the world. I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together. I have said nothing in secret. 21) Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me what I said to them; they know what I said." 22) When he had said these things, one of the officers standing by struck Jesus with his hand, saying, "Is that how you answer the high priest?" 23) Jesus answered him, "If what I said is wrong, bear witness about the wrong; but if what I said is right, why do you strike me?" 24) Annas then sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
