NET © Notes

tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

tn Grk “righteous,” but in this context the point is their false sincerity.

tn Grk “so that they might catch him in some word.”

tn This word is often translated “authority” in other contexts, but here, in combination with ἀρχή (arch), it refers to the domain or sphere of the governor’s rule (L&N 37.36).
