And the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the people were astonished at His teaching.
– Mark 11:18
It’s astonishing to me that the copiests of the law and the chief priests of Israel were seeking how they might destroy Jesus. They feared that they might lose the grip upon power the held among the people, so they sought for an opportune time to destroy him.
It is truly amazing the lengths to which we can go to maintain our control and position.
