At that time Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come out with swords and clubs, as against a robber, to arrest me? Every day in the temple [courts] I sat teaching, and you did not arrest me!
And the chief priests and the scribes heard [it], and began considering how they could destroy him. For they were afraid of him because the whole crowd was astounded by his teaching.
And [after] he arrived at the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came up to him [while he] was teaching, saying, "By what authority are you doing these [things]? And who gave you this authority?"

And some of them were wanting to seize him, but no one laid hands on him.
I know that you are descendants of Abraham. But you are seeking to kill me, because my word makes no progress among you.
So from that day they resolved that they should kill him.
