When morning came all the High Priests and the Elders of the people consulted together against Jesus to put Him to death;
But no sooner had the Pharisees left the synagogue than they held a consultation with the Herodians against Jesus, to devise some means of destroying Him.
But they were filled with madness, and began to discuss with one another what they should do to Jesus.
On this account then the Jews were all the more eager to put Him to death--because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also spoke of God as being in a special sense His Father, thus putting Himself on a level with God.
This made them once more try to arrest Him, but He withdrew out of their power.
So from that day forward they planned and schemed in order to put Him to death.
