“Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?”
King James Version (KJV)
Mt 26:68 Prophesy to us, . . . Who is he that smote thee? We learn from Mark that his face was covered, as a mark that he was a condemned man (Mr 14:65). The age was a cruel one, and Jewish bigots could not be too rough to the condemned prisoner.
