Matthew 26:1-5

The Plot to Kill Jesus

1When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, 2 a  “You know that after two days b  the Passover is coming, and c  the Son of Man d  will be delivered up to be crucified.”

3 e  Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in f  the palace of the high priest, whose name was g  Caiaphas, 4 h  and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. 5But they said, “Not during the feast i  lest there be an uproar among the people.”
