NARRATION (Man)
And they led Jesus away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and
The elders were assembled.
Now all of the council sought false witnesses against Jesus, to put him to
Death. And so they came:

FALSE WITNESS
This fellow here, This blasphemer,
I heard Him say-Yes, I heard it myself-
That He claims He is able to tear down the temple of God
And build it again in three days! Three days!
Yes, I heard it myself! And Thou sayest nothing?

NARRATION (Man)
But Jesus held his peace.

FALSE WITNESS
Because it's the truth.

NARRATION (Woman)
Now Peter had followed Jesus afar off and sat without in the palace: and a
Damsel came unto him.

DAMSEL
I know thy face...
Thour wast with Jesus of Galilee!

PETER
I know... I know not... I know not what thou sayest!

NARRATION (Man)
And the high priest said unto Jesus, Answerest thou nothing? I adjure thee
By the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of
God.
Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you,
Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power,
And coming in the clouds of heaven.

FALSE WITNESS
He hath spoken blasphemy! Behold, now ye have heard for yourselves His
Blasphemy!

NARRATION (Man)
Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with
The palms of their hands, Saying, Prophecy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he
That smote thee?
And Caiaphas asked of the council, What think ye? They answered and said,
He is guilty of death.

NARRATION (Woman)
And Peter made his way out into the porch. There, another maid recognized
Him.

MAID
This fellow here:
This fellow here was with Jesus of Nazareth.
I've seen him there also

PETER
I swear to you: No, I do not know the man!

DAMSEL
But surely thou also art one of them...

MAID
Surely thou followed with Jesus...

DAMSEL
Thy speech is of Galilee

MAID
I've seen you there also...

DAMSEL
Yes, thou wast with Jesus of Galilee!

MAID
Thou was with Jesus of Nazareth

DAMSEL
Thou wast with Jesus of Galilee!

MAID
Thou wast with Jesus of Nazareth!

DAMSEL
Thou wast with Jesus of Galilee!

MAID
Thou was with Jesus of...

PETER
I know not the man!

NARRATION (Woman)
And immediately the cock crew.
