(1a) Mark 11:18-19
/11:18/ And when the chief priests and the scribes heard it, they kept looking for a way to kill him; for they were afraid of him, because the whole crowd was spellbound by his teaching. /11:19/ And when evening came, Jesus and his disciples went out of the city.
= Luke 19:47-48
/19:47/ Every day he was teaching in the temple. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people kept looking for a way to kill him; /19:48/ but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were spellbound by what they heard.
(1b) Mark 14:1-2
/14:1/ It was two days before the Passover and the festival of Unleavened Bread. The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him; /14:2/ for they said, "Not during the festival, or there may be a riot among the people."
= Matt 26:3-5
/26:3/ Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, /26:4/ and they conspired to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. /26:5/ But they said, "Not during the festival, or there may be a riot among the people."
= Luke 22:1-2
/22:1/ Now the festival of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was near. /22:2/ The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to put Jesus to death, for they were afraid of the people.
(2a) John 7:40-52
/7:40/ When they heard these words, some in the crowd said, "This is really the prophet." /7:41/ Others said, "This is the Messiah." But some asked, "Surely the Messiah does not come from Galilee, does he? /7:42/ Has not the scripture said that the Messiah is descended from David and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?" /7:43/ So there was a division in the crowd because of him. /7:44/ Some of them wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him. /7:45/ Then the temple police went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, "Why did you not arrest him?" /7:46/ The police answered, "Never has anyone spoken like this!" /7:47/ Then the Pharisees replied, "Surely you have not been deceived too, have you? /7:48/ Has any one of the authorities or of the Pharisees believed in him? /7:49/ But this crowd, which does not know the law--they are accursed." /7:50/ Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus before, and who was one of them, asked, /7:51/ "Our law does not judge people without first giving them a hearing to find out what they are doing, does it?" /7:52/ They replied, "Surely you are not also from Galilee, are you? Search and you will see that no prophet is to arise from Galilee."
(2b) John 11:45-53
/11:45/ Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him. /11:46/ But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what he had done. /11:47/ So the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the council, and said, "What are we to do? This man is performing many signs. /11:48/ If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation." /11:49/ But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all! /11:50/ You do not understand that it is better for you to have one man die for the people than to have the whole nation destroyed." /11:51/ He did not say this on his own, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation, /11:52/ and not for the nation only, but to gather into one the dispersed children of God. /11:53/ So from that day on they planned to put him to death.
(2c) John 11:57
/11:57/ Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that anyone who knew where Jesus was should let them know, so that they might arrest him.
