Luke, only, deals with the gap between the true 4 am and true 6 am which occurred because of the fast times. In that period Agrippa believed that his rivals were now removed and he could claim messianic status as Herod the Great had done.

Luke 22:64 Thomas then showed sympathy with Peter, telling him that it was Agrippa who had ordered the beating. He took Peter into concealment in the congregation annexe, where he would remain all day.

Luke 22:64

64 They covering-around him (RLR to Peter vv 62, 63) questioned saying, " Prophecy, a Certain One is who has hit you."

6:00 am

Luke 22:66 At 6:00 am, when Pilate's trial was due to begin in 5 minutes' time, Agrippa took the north base, as he would do on every hour for the next three. Eleazar his levite stood on his east, James on his west, and Annas in front of him.

Luke 22:67 The question of Agrippa's messianic status arose, as his rivals were out of the way. Eleazar raised it with him, and was told that it would be necessary to hold Sadducee views.

Luke 22:68 Eleazar was promised that he would be able to act as a bishop, replacing Judas.

Luke 22:69 Agrippa mocked Simon Magus, who was a prisoner at the south base, with Jesus as his deputy on his right.

Luke 22:66

66. Kai hōs egeneto hēmera, synēchthē to presbyterion tou laou, archiereis te kai grammateis, kai apēgagon auton eis to synedrion autōn,

66. And as a day came about, there was led-with the presbytery of the Layman, Chief Priests T-E. And Scribes (Eleazar). And they (RLR to Scribes) led-from him (RLR to Certain One vv. 64, 65) at the council of them ( Scribes).

66. At 6:00 am when Pilate's trials at the north base would begin in 5 minutes' time, Agrippa took the north base as he did on every hour for the next 3 hours. His levite Eleazar of Galilee conducted him to it and stood on his east side. James stood on the west side. Annas stood in front of him .

Luke 22:67

67. legontes, Ei sy ei ho Christos, eipon hēmin. eipen de autois, Ean hymin eipō ou mē pisteusēte.

67 They (Scribes Eleazar, subject of participle RLR to subject of last full verb) saying, " If{ei} you (sing.) are the Christ, say to us. He (RLR to Christ, Agrippa) said to them (Scribes), " If{ean} I say to you (plu.), not-not you (plu.) believe.

67. The question of Agrippa's authority was becoming urgent, now that his enemy Simon Magus was to be condemned by Rome. Herod the Great had claimed to be both Messiah of Aaron and Messiah of Israel, with the ascetics acting on his behalf. Eleazar said to Agrippa, "There is a question whether you are the Messiah of Israel, as Jesus claims that role. Say that you are. Agrippa said to Eleazar, "When I do say that, you will accept it out of Sadducee pro-Roman convictions.

Luke 22:68

68. ean de erōtēsō ou mē apokrithēte.

68 " If{ean} I question, not-not you (plu) answer.

68. "When I question, you Eleazar may act as a bishop and answer". That meant that Agrippa intended to put him in the place of Judas. Agrippa's change of mind about Judas was now beginning.

Luke 22:69

69. apo tou nyn de estai ho huios tou anthrōpou kathēmenos ek dexiōn tēs dynameōs tou theou.

69. " From the Now{nyn} there will be the Son of the Man{anthrōpos} sitting out of the right things of the Power of God."

69. Agrippa went on, mocking Simon Magus as a prisoner on the south base, with Jesus on his east side,."At this Passover season, not the Pentecost season to which he looks forward, Jesus is indeed sitting on the right of Simon Magus, because Simon is on the south base, with Jesus beside him."

6:00 am           (Luke has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)

6:03 am           (John has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)

6:03 am           (Mark has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)

6:03 am.

Luke 22:70 Antipas was now taking his place behind the north base ready to be translator to Pilate.He said to Agrippa, "You are only a teacher of Gentiles who is a deputy to the Annas priest". Agrippa replied, "But you say that I am a priest to proselytes."

Luke 22:71 Antipas said that he deferred to the Sadducee Annas when he dealt with Gentiles. He did add proselyte fees to the Jewish welfare tithes, which would help Agrippa financially.

Luke 22:70

70. eipan de pantes, Sy oun ei ho huios tou theou; ho de pros autous ephē, Hymeis legete hoti egō eimi.

70. All Ones said, "You (sing.) therefore are the Son of God. He (addressed, Agrippa) towards them ( All Ones) uttered, "You (plu.) say that I am."

70. Antipas was now taking his place behind the north base to act as translator to Pilate. He tried to modify Agrippa's claim of superiority to an Annas priest. Agrippa replied that as a royal Herod he could act as priest to his proselyte eunuchs.

Luke 22:71

71. hoi de eipan, Ti eti echomen martyrias chreian; autoi gar ēkousamen apo tou stomatos autou.

71. They (addressed, Antipas) said, " T still we have need of witness. For as a They (pronoun nominative) we have heard from the mouth of him (RLR to he addressed, Agrippa v.71).

71. Antipas said, "I use Greek and the sign of the cross when I receive the welfare tithes of married proselytes. As a Herod in a synagogue congregation I hear teaching from Annas the Sadducee priest, who speaks on behalf of Agrippa."

At 6:05 am Agrippa vacated the north base for Pilate, who had just arrived.

6:03 am           (Luke has no verse for this time. Scroll down for next time.)
