Today’s Reading: Luke 22:63-71

63 Now the men who were holding Jesus mocked him and beat him; 64 they also blindfolded him and asked him, “Prophesy! Who is it that struck you?” 65 And they spoke many other words against him, reviling him.

66 When day came, the assembly of the elders of the people gathered together, both chief priests and scribes; and they led him away to their council, and they said, 67 “If you are the Christ, tell us.” But he said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe; 68 and if I ask you, you will not answer. 69 But from now on the Son of man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.” 70 And they all said, “Are you the Son of God, then?” And he said to them, “You say that I am.” 71 And they said, “What further testimony do we need? We have heard it ourselves from his own lips.”

 

Today’s Commentary:

from now on: Jesus envisions the verdict of the Sanhedrin being overturned in God’s court. He draws from Ps 110:1 and Dan 7:13 to predict his enthronement at the Father’s right hand and his vindication as the royal Son of man.
