66 At length when it became day, the assembly of older men of the people, both chief priests and scribes, gathered together, and they haled him into their Sanhedrin hall, saying: 67 "If you are the Christ, tell us." But he said to them: "Even if I told you, you would not believe it at all. 68 Moreover, it I questioned you, you would not answer at all. 69 However, from now on the Son of man will be sitting at the powerful right hand of God." 70 At this they all said: "Are you, therefore, the Son of God?" He said to them: "You yourselves are saying that I am." 71 They said: "Why do we need further witness?" For we ourselves have heard it out of his own mouth."
