The witnesses who appeared before the Sanhedrin could not prove anything against Christ because their stories contradicted each other. The jurists, chiefs, and elders found no reason to condemn Christ, and He remained innocent before them.They did not understand what Christ said about destroying the temple and building it again in three days. He did not say that He Himself would destroy the temple, but that they would destroy the temple of His body that was filled with Godhood and He would rebuild it in three days. This actually foretold His death and resurrection.Jesus kept silent before the lies and false accusations. When the trial seemed to have failed, Caiaphas (the high priest that year) arose in fury and tried to trick Christ. Caiaphas wanted Him to say something that would condemn Him so that they could pass judgment against Him. Jesus did not answer, however, but simply glanced at him without saying a word.
