John 12:10 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "But the chief priests consulted," (ebouleusanto de hoi archiereis) "Then the administrative priests took counsel," entered collusion among themselves, as they repeatedly did against Jesus and any who would confess that He was the Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of the world, Joh 9:22; Joh 9:34; Joh 12:42-43; Joh 16:2.

2) "That they might put Lazarus also to death;” (hina kai ton Lazaron apokteinosin) "In order that they might also kill Lazarus," as well as Jesus. The chief priests (active administrative priests) were little less than a mafia-type liquidation squad, with deceitful murder in their hearts against anyone who might endanger their beliefs or jobs, Jer 17:9; Joh 8:40; Joh 8:44.
