NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context.

tn Grk “they did not find the thing that they might do.”

sn All the people hung on his words is an idiom for intent, eager listening. Jesus’ popularity and support made it unwise for the leadership to seize him.
