26:59 The 2 chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were trying to find false testimony against Jesus so that they could put him to death. 26:60 But they did not find anything, though many false witnesses came forward. Finally 3 two came forward 26:61 and declared, “This man 4 said, ‘I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.’” 26:62 So 5 the high priest stood up and said to him, “Have you no answer? What is this that they are testifying against you?” 26:63 But Jesus was silent.

But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand 8 of the Power 9 and coming on the clouds of heaven.” 10 26:65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and declared, 11 “He has blasphemed! Why do we still need witnesses? Now 12 you have heard the blasphemy!
