A large crowd followed Him, because they saw the signs which He was performing on those who were sick.
The Pharisees heard the crowd muttering these things about Him, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent officers to seize Him.
The officers then came to the chief priests and Pharisees, and they said to them, "Why did you not bring Him?"
Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where He was, he was to report it, so that they might seize Him.
