The Pharisees conspire against Jesus (Mt 12:14-12:14)

“But the Pharisees went out.

They conspired against him.

They wondered

How to destroy him.”

 

ἐξελθόντες δὲ οἱ Φαρισαῖοι συμβούλιον ἔλαβον κατ’ αὐτοῦ ὅπως αὐτὸν ἀπολέσωσιν.

 

Matthew has this episode end with the Pharisees getting together to conspire to destroy Jesus, similar to Mark, chapter 3:6, and Luke, chapter 6:11.  However the wording is a little different in the other synoptics.  Here the Pharisees went and conspired how to grab Jesus (ἐξελθόντες δὲ οἱ Φαρισαῖοι συμβούλιον ἔλαβον κατ’ αὐτοῦ).  They wondered how they could destroy or kill him (ὅπως αὐτὸν ἀπολέσωσιν).
