'Leaders' in the Bible
This was John's testimony when the Jewish leaders sent priests and descendants of Levi to him from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"
Then the Jewish leaders asked him, "What sign can you show us as authority for doing these things?"
The Jewish leaders said, "This sanctuary has been under construction for 46 years, and you're going to rebuild it in three days?"
So the Jewish leaders told the man who had been healed, "It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to carry your mat.
The man went off and told the Jewish leaders that it was Jesus who had made him well.
So the Jewish leaders began persecuting Jesus, because he kept doing such things on the Sabbath.
So the Jewish leaders were trying all the harder to kill him, because he was not only breaking the Sabbath but was also calling God his own Father, thereby making himself equal to God.
Then the Jewish leaders began grumbling about him because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven."
Then the Jewish leaders debated angrily with each other, asking, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
After this, Jesus traveled throughout Galilee, because he didn't want to travel in Judea, since the Jewish leaders there were trying to kill him.
The Jewish leaders kept looking for him at the festival, asking, "Where is that man?"
Nevertheless, no one would speak openly about him because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders.
The Jewish leaders were astonished and remarked, "How can this man be so educated when he has never gone to school?"
Then the Jewish leaders tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him because his hour had not yet come.
Then the Jewish leaders asked one another, "Where does this man intend to go that we won't be able to find him? Surely he's not going to the Dispersion among the Greeks and teach the Greeks, is he?
So the Jewish leaders were asking, "He isn't going to kill himself, is he? Is that why he said, "You cannot come where I'm going'?"
The Jewish leaders replied to him, "Surely we're right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon, aren't we?"
Then the Jewish leaders told him, "Now we really know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and so did the prophets, but you say, "If anyone keeps my word, he will never taste death.'
Then the Jewish leaders asked him, "You are not even 50 years old, yet you have seen Abraham?"
The Jewish leaders did not believe that the man had been blind and had gained sight until they summoned his parents
His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders, since the Jewish leaders had already agreed that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Messiah would be thrown out of the synagogue.
The Jewish leaders summoned the man who had been blind a second time and told him, "Give glory to God! We know that this man is a sinner."
So the Jewish leaders surrounded him and quizzed him, "How long are you going to keep us in suspense? If you're the Messiah, tell us so plainly."
Again the Jewish leaders picked up stones to stone him to death.
The Jewish leaders answered him, "We are not going to stone you for a good action, but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, are making yourself God!"
The disciples told him, "Rabbi, the Jewish leaders were just now trying to stone you to death, and you are going back there again?"
Little children, I'm with you only a little longer. You will look for me, but what I told the Jewish leaders I now tell you, "Where I'm going, you cannot come.'
Then the squad of soldiers with their commanding officer and the officers of the Jewish leaders arrested Jesus and tied him up.
(Now it was Caiaphas who had advised the Jewish leaders that it was to their advantage that one man die for the people.)
Pilate told them, "Take him yourselves and pass judgment on him according to your own law!" The Jewish leaders replied, "We cannot legally put anyone to death."
The Jewish leaders told him, "It is not legal for us to put anyone to death." This was to fulfill what Jesus had said when he indicated the kind of death he was to die.
Jesus answered, "My kingdom does not belong to this world. If my kingdom belonged to this world, my servants would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But for now my kingdom is not from here."
Pilate asked him, "What is "truth'?" and then he went out to the Jewish leaders again and told them, "I find no basis for a charge against him.
Again Pilate went out and said to the Jewish leaders, "Look, I am bringing him out to you, so that you may know that I find no reason for an accusation against him."
The Jewish leaders answered Pilate, "We have a law, and according to that Law he must die because he made himself out to be the Son of God."
From then on, Pilate tried to release him, but the Jewish leaders kept shouting, "If you release this fellow, you're not a friend of Caesar! Anyone who claims to be a king is defying Caesar!"
Now it was the Preparation Day for the Passover, about noon. He told the Jewish leaders, "Here is your king!"
Since it was the Preparation Day, the Jewish leaders did not want to leave the bodies on the crosses during the Sabbath, because that was a particularly important Sabbath. So they asked Pilate to have the men's legs broken and the bodies removed.
Later on, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus (though a secret one because he was afraid of the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate to let him remove the body of Jesus. Pilate gave him permission, and he came and removed his body.
It was the evening of the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Jesus came and stood among them. He told them, "Peace be with you."
