Pharisees & Chief Priests were also of the SPIRIT OF POLITICS, patriotism, earthly kingdoms, killing and war and death.
-Politics & patriotism: they had deals with the Roman Government System, worked with them in compromise, for their benefit, so they could keep their status quo.
-Earthly kingdoms: worried that they would lose theirs: “they’ll come and take away our place and our nation”.
-Killing & war: determined to kill anyone who embarrassed them or got in the way of their plans and desires to rule.
-Death: plotted to have Jesus* killed.
