The high priest heard what he wanted to hear

The high priest asked Jesus if He was the Son of God, to which Jesus affirmed that it was as the high priest said, and that later the high priest would see Jesus sitting at the right hand of Power,

Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy! What do you think?” They answered and said, “He is deserving of death” (Matthew 26.65–66).

The high priest had already made up his mind, and when he heard something that supported his idea that Jesus was a fraud, he looked for support from his colleagues, who gave it whole-heartedly.

They then condemned the Son of God to death. What was it like when that high priest, and the others, finally saw Jesus sitting at the right of Power?
