Matthew 26:1-5

Plot to kill Jesus

1 When Jesus finished speaking all these words, he said to his disciples,
2 "You know that the Passover is two days from now. And the Human One will be handed over to be crucified."
3 Then the chief priests and elders of the people gathered in the courtyard of Caiaphas the high priest.
4 They were plotting to arrest Jesus by cunning tricks and to kill him.
5 But they agreed that it shouldn't happen during the feast so there wouldn't be an uproar among the people.
