LAST PUBLIC MINISTRY IN JERUSALEM

Sep 6 10.1 Many country Jews went early to Jerusalem for purification before the coming Passover. They looked for Jesus, and asked one another in the temple, “Do you think he will come1 to the feast?” Now the chief priests and Pharisees had given orders that anyone who knew his movement should report it, so they could arrest him.

10.2 Six days before the Passover, a multitude of Jews heard that Jesus was in Bethany, so they went there to see Jesus as well as Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the dead six weeks earlier.1 So the chief priests planned to kill Lazarus too, for because of him many Jews went and believed in Jesus.
