The chief priests and Pharisees convened a council

JOH 11:43-54

Their first and only concern was for their own personal interests.

The only authority they lived in fear of was the Roman government.

The chief priests and Pharisees should have been less concerned about the Romans …


But the Romans came anyway.

DAN 9:26

This came to pass when the Roman armies leveled Jerusalem in 70 AD.

LUK 21:20-24

And the religious leaders were to blame for all of it.

MAT 23:34-36

JOH 5:36-40

They prided themselves on being disciples of Moses,
yet …

JOH 5:46-47

They rejected all of the witnesses God sent to attest that Jesus was His Son!

Were their deliberations guided by what the scriptures had to say?

MAT 21:33-45

How could they be so off the mark?

Common, everyday people saw the same evidence and believed in Him.

The religious leaders should have been looking for the corner stone - Jesus!

But they rejected what their own Scriptures had to say about Him.

Ephs 2:19-22

Keep your eyes on Christ our corner stone!

Treasure the words of God as more necessary than our daily food.

MAT 4:4
JOH 8:31-32

Let’s press on to know the truth. Let us come to know Christ better.

PHI 3:8-11
