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."
