John 11:53 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Then from that day forth," (ap' ekeines oun tes hemeras) "Then from that very, day," when the chief priests, Pharisees, and Caiaphas entered collusion against Jesus, with deliberate, premeditated, malice, aforethought, Joh 11:47-50.

2) "They took counsel together," (ebouleusanto) "Then took council among themselves," or entered collusion among themselves; They plotted and planned; It was the kind of crisis they had long been waiting to take advantage of, Joh 5:16; Joh 5:18; Joh 8:32; Joh 8:39; Joh 8:37; Joh 8:40; Joh 8:59. Prior to this only the synagogue rulers had entered the threats against His life, but now and hereafter, the council of the Sanhedrin, backed by the high priest, pressed for His arrest, indictment and death. So repulsive was the scheme that Joseph of Arimathea withdrew from the council, Luk 23:50-51.

3) "For to put him to death." (hina apokteinosin auton) "In order that they might kill him," or to find occasion to kill Him, Psa 109:4-5; they sentenced Him to death that day in the courts of their own malicious decree; Peter later charged them openly or publicly with the crime, Act 5:17; Act 5:24; Act 5:29-33.
