Matthew 26:3-4 ” Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest whose name was Caiaphas, and they plotted to arrest Jesus in some sly way and kill Him.”

The religious officials had been scheming for a while on how they might murder Jesus…but the last straw came when they heard He had raised Lazarus from the dead. The chief priest, Caiaphas, was an especially strong opponent of Jesus & His Message and had no regard for justice or truth when it came to getting rid of Him. That’s because Jesus’ teaching in the Temple Courts infringed on Caiaphas’s self-proclaimed title of “Keeper of all things” on the Law and the Prophets, and this encroachment on his authority infuriated him. So whatever form of trickery or deceit it was going to take in order to kill Jesus, Caiaphas was ready to make it happen.
