John 11:47 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "Then gathered the chief priests," (sunegagon oun hoi archiereis) "Then the administrative priests assembled," came together in an orderly meeting, but with ulterior motives against Jesus still, Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 7:13; Joh 7:25; Joh 8:37; Joh 8:40; Joh 8:59.

2) "And the Pharisees and a council," (kai hoi Pharisaioi sunedrion) "And the Pharisees a council," hastily convened to head off what they considered to be a crisis, in fear of and opposition to Jesus Christ, Joh 11:23; Psa 2:2; Mat 26:3.

3) "And said, What do we?" (kai elegon ti poioumen ) "And they said, what are we doing," about this matter, this man (Jesus') influence? It jeopardized their religious and social positions in the community, and at every reminder they resented it, Joh 1:11-12.

4) "For this man doeth many miracles." (hoti houtos ho anthropos polla poiei semeia) "Because this man does miracles repeatedly," Joh 3:19; Act 4:16, again and again, and yet, they were conniving to stop Him. And they even confessed that the world "the world order" was going after or following Him. The answer is, "that is who He came to seek and to save," and the mission His Father sent Him to do was being fulfilled, even by admission of His most bitter enemies.
