Pharisees try to trick Jesus (Mt 22:15-22:15)

“Then the Pharisees

Went away.

They plotted

To entrap Jesus

In what he had said.”


Τότε πορευθέντες οἱ Φαρισαῖοι συμβούλιον ἔλαβον ὅπως αὐτὸν παγιδεύσωσιν ἐν λόγῳ.


There is something similar in Mark, chapter 12:13, and in Luke, chapter 20:20.  Then the Pharisees went away (Τότε πορευθέντες οἱ Φαρισαῖοι).  However, they plotted or gathered together (συμβούλιον ἔλαβον) to entrap or entangle Jesus in what he had said (ὅπως αὐτὸν παγιδεύσωσιν ἐν λόγῳ).  They were out to get him by using his own words against him.
