The high priest then questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.The High Priest Questions Jesus Jn.18.19-24 Mt.26.59-66  Mk.14.55-64  Lk.22.66-71   
Jesus answered him, "I have spoken openly to the world; I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together; I have said nothing secretly.         
Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me, what I said to them; they know what I said."         
When he had said this, one of the officers standing by struck Jesus with his hand, saying, "Is that how you answer the high priest?"         
Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken wrongly, bear witness to the wrong; but if I have spoken rightly, why do you strike me?"         
Annas then sent him bound to Ca'iaphas the high priest.
