Conspiracy to Kill Jesus

Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:47 - the chief priests, therefore, and the Pharisees, gathered together a sanhedrim, and said, 'What may we do? because this man doth many signs?
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:48 - if we may let him alone thus, all will believe in him; and the Romans will come, and will take away both our place and nation.'
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:49 - and a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being chief priest of that year, said to them, 'Ye have not known anything,
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:50 - nor reason that it is good for us that one man may die for the people, and not the whole nation perish.'
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:51 - And this he said not of himself, but being chief priest of that year, he did prophesy that Jesus was about to die for the nation,
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:52 - and not for the nation only, but that also the children of God, who have been scattered abroad, he may gather together into one.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:53 - From that day, therefore, they took counsel together that they may kill him;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:54 - Jesus, therefore, was no more freely walking among the Jews, but went away thence to the region nigh the wilderness, to a city called Ephraim, and there he tarried with his disciples.
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:55 - And the passover of the Jews was nigh, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the passover, that they might purify themselves;
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:56 - they were seeking, therefore, Jesus, and said one with another, standing in the temple, 'What doth appear to you -- that he may not come to the feast?'
Unchecked Copy BoxJhn 11:57 - and both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a command, that if any one may know where he is, he may shew it, so that they may seize him.
