Matthew 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now praye to my father, and he shall geue me more then twelue Legions of angels? Matthew 26:54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfylled? for this must it be.

And the chefe preste answered and sayde vnto him: I charge the by the lyuinge God, þt thou tell vs, whether thou be Christ the sonne of God. Matthew 26:64 Iesus sayeth vnto hym, thou hast sayd. Neuerthelesse I saye vnto you here after shall ye se the sonne of man syttinge on þe right hande of power, and commyng in the cloudes of the skye.
