1 Peter 2:23
who, when He was reviled, reviled not again; when He suffered, He threatened not; but committed Himself to Him that judgeth righteously.
And Pilate asked Him, Art thou the king of the Jews? and He answered It is as thou sayst.
he sent two of his disciples to ask Him, Art thou He who was to come, or are we to expect another?
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ the Son of the living God.
Then the high priest said to Him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us, if thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
and said to Him, Art thou the Messiah? tell us. And He said unto them, If I should tell you, ye would not believe:
Then the Jews came round Him, and said unto Him, How long dost thou hold us in suspense? If thou be the Messiah, tell us plainly.
Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art thou then a king? Jesus answered, Thou sayest right, I am a king. For this end was I born, and for this came I into the world, even that I might bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice.
