But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus.

– Matthew 27:20

How much do you have to hate someone to stir up people to destroy another individual? The striking thing is that they could justify it so much that they (as religious leaders—including the chief priest) thought themselves to be doing the will of God.

Be afraid when your disdain for another moves toward malice.
