John 18:18-25

John 18:18-25

A (18) And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

B (19) The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.

C (20-21) Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in secret have I said nothing. Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, they know what I said.

D (22a) And when he had thus spoken,

E (22b) one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying,

D’ (22c) Answerest thou the high priest so?

C’ (23) Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?

B’ (24) Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.

A’ (25) And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
