Why is this night different from all other nights?
Because once we were slaves and now we are free.

And they led Jesus to the high priest. And all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes came together. . . .
The high priest asked him, "Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?"
And Jesus said, "I AM,
and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power,
and coming with the clouds of heaven."
And the high priest tore his garments and said, "What further witnesses do we need? You have heard his blasphemy! What is your decision?"
And they all condemned him as deserving death. Then some began to spit at him; they blindfolded him, struck him with their fists, and said, "Prophesy!" And the guards took him and beat him.
-- Mark 14:53-65
