The Son of God (Lk 22:70-22:70)

“All of them asked.

‘Are you then

The Son of God?’

Jesus said to them.

‘You say that I am.’”

εἶπαν δὲ πάντες Σὺ οὖν εἶ ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ; ὁ δὲ πρὸς αὐτοὺς ἔφη Ὑμεῖς λέγετε ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι.

Only Luke uniquely indicated that all the people of the council asked Jesus (εἶπαν δὲ πάντες) if he was the Son of God (εἶ ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ).  This was a very direct question that seemed to be from everybody there at this meeting.  Jesus then said to them (ὁ δὲ πρὸς αὐτοὺς ἔφη), if you say it (Ὑμεῖς λέγετε), then he was (ὅτι ἐγώ εἰμι).  This was like the response that Jesus had given in Matthew, chapter 26:63 (Σὺ εἶπας), not the more direct positive response as in Mark, chapter, 14:62 (Ἐγώ εἰμι).  Clearly, Jesus was the Son of God, in this ambiguous statement.  Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God?
