Today's Christian clip art: Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin

Matthew 26:57-66, Mark 14:53-64, Luke 22:66-71

Those who had arrested Jesus took him to Caiaphas, the high priest. Caiaphas and chief priest and whole Sanhedrin was looking for false evidence against Jesus. But they could not find any they could use to put Jesus to death. Caiaphas asked Jesus "Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." Jesus replied, "Yes, it is as you say. But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." Then Caiaphas said excitedly, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses?" They answered, "He is worthy of death!"
