Bible: John 18:19-23

Jesus Questioned by Annas

18:19 While this was happening, 1  the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and about his teaching. 2  18:20 Jesus replied, 3 I have spoken publicly to the world. I always taught in the synagogues 4  and in the temple courts, 5  where all the Jewish people 6  assemble together. I 7  have said nothing in secret. 18:21 Why do you ask me? Ask those who heard what I said. 8  They 9  know what I said.” 18:22 When Jesus 10  had said this, one of the high priest’s officers who stood nearby struck him on the face and said, 11 Is that the way you answer the high priest? 18:23 Jesus replied, 12 If I have said something wrong, 13  confirm 14  what is wrong. 15  But if I spoke correctly, why strike me?
