Mark chapter 14

Jesus and Caiaphas

Verses 52-59

The men led Jesus away. They reached the house of the most important *priest. This *priest was called Caiaphas.

Many important men came to the house. They had to decide what they would do to Jesus. They already knew that they wanted his death. But they had no proper reason to decide that. He had not done anything that was against the *law. He had not taught anything that the Bible does not teach. Everything that he did was completely good.

Some people gave reports about him. But their reports were not true. These people did not agree. So they argued with each other.

Other people said that Jesus had spoken about *Godís Great House. Mark says that their reports were not true. They were trying to cause trouble for Jesus. But they said things that were like Jesusí words in John 2:19. Perhaps those people changed Jesusí words so that they seemed to be bad words. These people did not agree also.
