Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:44

The traitor, Judas, had given them a prearranged signal: “You will know which one to arrest when I greet him with a kiss. Then you can take him away under guard.”

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:45

As soon as they arrived, Judas walked up to Jesus. “Rabbi!” he exclaimed, and gave him the kiss.

Tools specific to Mar 14:46

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:46

Then the others grabbed Jesus and arrested him.

Tools specific to Mar 14:47

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:47

But one of the men with Jesus pulled out his sword and struck the high priest’s slave, slashing off his ear.

Tools specific to Mar 14:48

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:48

Jesus asked them, “Am I some dangerous revolutionary, that you come with swords and clubs to arrest me?

Tools specific to Mar 14:49

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:49

Why didn’t you arrest me in the Temple? I was there among you teaching every day. But these things are happening to fulfill what the Scriptures say about me.”

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:50

Then all his disciples deserted him and ran away.

Tools specific to Mar 14:51

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:51

One young man following behind was clothed only in a long linen shirt. When the mob tried to grab him,

Tools specific to Mar 14:52

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:52

he slipped out of his shirt and ran away naked.

Tools specific to Mar 14:53

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:53

They took Jesus to the high priest’s home where the leading priests, the elders, and the teachers of religious law had gathered.

Tools specific to Mar 14:54

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:54

Meanwhile, Peter followed him at a distance and went right into the high priest’s courtyard. There he sat with the guards, warming himself by the fire.

Tools specific to Mar 14:55

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:55

Inside, the leading priests and the entire high council[fn] were trying to find evidence against Jesus, so they could put him to death. But they couldn’t find any.

Tools specific to Mar 14:56

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:56

Many false witnesses spoke against him, but they contradicted each other.

Tools specific to Mar 14:57

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:57

Finally, some men stood up and gave this false testimony:

Tools specific to Mar 14:58

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:58

“We heard him say, ‘I will destroy this Temple made with human hands, and in three days I will build another, made without human hands.’”

Tools specific to Mar 14:59

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:59

But even then they didn’t get their stories straight!

Tools specific to Mar 14:60

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:60

Then the high priest stood up before the others and asked Jesus, “Well, aren’t you going to answer these charges? What do you have to say for yourself?”

Tools specific to Mar 14:61

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:61

But Jesus was silent and made no reply. Then the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?”

Tools specific to Mar 14:62

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:62

Jesus said, “I AM.[fn] And you will see the Son of Man seated in the place of power at God’s right hand[fn] and coming on the clouds of heaven.[fn]

Tools specific to Mar 14:63

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:63

Then the high priest tore his clothing to show his horror and said, “Why do we need other witnesses?

Tools specific to Mar 14:64

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:64

You have all heard his blasphemy. What is your verdict?” “Guilty!” they all cried. “He deserves to die!”

Tools specific to Mar 14:65

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:65

Then some of them began to spit at him, and they blindfolded him and beat him with their fists. “Prophesy to us,” they jeered. And the guards slapped him as they took him away.

Tools specific to Mar 14:66

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:66

Meanwhile, Peter was in the courtyard below. One of the servant girls who worked for the high priest came by

Tools specific to Mar 14:67

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:67

and noticed Peter warming himself at the fire. She looked at him closely and said, “You were one of those with Jesus of Nazareth.[fn]

Tools specific to Mar 14:68

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:68

But Peter denied it. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said, and he went out into the entryway. Just then, a rooster crowed.[fn]

Tools specific to Mar 14:69

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:69

When the servant girl saw him standing there, she began telling the others, “This man is definitely one of them!”

Tools specific to Mar 14:70

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:70

But Peter denied it again. A little later some of the other bystanders confronted Peter and said, “You must be one of them, because you are a Galilean.”

Tools specific to Mar 14:71

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:71

Peter swore, “A curse on me if I’m lying—I don’t know this man you’re talking about!”

Tools specific to Mar 14:72

Unchecked Copy Box Mar 14:72

And immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Suddenly, Jesus’ words flashed through Peter’s mind: “Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny three times that you even know me.” And he broke down and wept.
