God's Right Hand 27

Jewish Leaders Pressed Him

handsLuke 22.66-71 reads, "At daybreak the Council of the Elders of the people, both the chief priests and teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them," in order to question him. They asked him in about his claims of divinity. "'If you are the Christ,' they said, 'Tell us.' Jesus answered, 'If I tell you, you will not believe me, and if I asked you, you would not answer. But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.'

The I Am

Jesus Creator GodThey all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am." (Jesus here used the sacred name of God, "I Am," affirming his own deity.) The Jewish leaders then said, 'Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips.'" They pressed Jesus in John 19.7 about his claim of deity and insisted, "We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God."
