The death of the Man-Savior
He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came,
and he who is called bJudas

and brought Him
into the house of the high priest. But Peter bfollowed
at a distance.
when they had lit a fire in the middle of the acourtyard
and sat down together, Peter sat among them.
a certain servant girl, seeing him seated in the light of the fire,
looked intently at him and said, This man was with Him too.
he denied it,
saying, I do not know Him, woman.
after a short time, another person, seeing him, said, You also are one of them. But Peter said, Man, I am not!
after about one hour had passed, 1another

from now on the 1Son
of Man will be seated at the aright

they all said, Are You then the 1Son
of God? And He said to them, aYou
that I am.
they said, What further need do we have of testimony? For we have heard it
ourselves from His mouth.
