The chief priests and Pharisees convened a council.

The chief priests and Pharisees convened a council
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 …
…and MORE CONCERNED about THE LORD!
But the Romans came anyway.
This came to pass when the Roman armies leveled Jerusalem in 70 AD.
And the religious leaders were to blame for all of it.
They prided themselves on being disciples of Moses,
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?
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.
Keep your eyes on Christ our corner stone!
Treasure the words of God as more necessary than our daily food.
Let’s press on to know the truth. Let us come to know Christ better.
