Chapter Summary

Luke's and John's accounts of Jesus appearance before the Jewish authorities agree in that neither constitutes a formal trial with witnesses called and a verdict handed down, but in Mark and Matthew this is the case. Luke uses Mark in his account of examination scene, but departs from him as far as the order of the events is concerned as weIl as in the elements which he had in common with John. John composed the core on the basis of two sources, one Mark, and the other a source in which Annas examined Jesus and in which he was called the highpriest. In their accounts of Jesus examination by the Jews both Luke and John drew, in addition to Mark, on the same written, non-Marcan account of the scene, and Annas examined Jesus and the examination was an informal one; the first of these elements is probably, the second, historical.
