The Judgment of Annas and Caiaphas (Athos) Icon - F251


Product Description

"So the cohort and the tribune and the servants of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound him, and led him away to Annas first. For he was Caiaphas’ father in law, who was chief priest that year. It was Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it was advantageous for one individual to die for the people. Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. The disciple was known to the chief priest and he entered the courtyard of the chief priest with Jesus. While Peter stood at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the chief priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper and brought Peter in. Then the girl who was the doorkeeper said to Peter, ‘You are not one of this man’s disciples too, are you?’ He says to her, ‘I am not.’ The slaves and servants were standing at a charcoal fire they had made, because it was cold, warming themselves. Peter was standing with them and warming himself. So the chief priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and about his teaching. Jesus answered him, ‘I have spoken freely to the world. I always taught in the synagogue and the temple, where the Jews always assemble, and I have said nothing in secret. Why are you questioning me? Question those who heard what I have said to them. They know what I said.’ When he had said these things one of the servants standing nearby gave Jesus a blow, saying, ‘Is this how you answer the chief priest?’ Jesus answered him, ‘If I have spoken wrongly, testify to the wrong. If I have spoken rightly, why do you strike me?’ Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas the chief priest."

(From the 2nd Passion Gospel reading of Holy Friday in the Orthodox tradition.)
