Matthew 26:1–5 (ESV)

The Plot to Kill Jesus

26 When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.”

Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. But they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar among the people.”

 

If the Law says “Thou shalt not murder,” then why are they trying to murder Jesus?  It is easy to point your finger at other people, yet often difficult to see your own sins.  The chief priests and elders are not looking into the mirror, so they don’t see themselves.  The Lutheran Study Bible states: “Both Jesus and His enemies long for His impending death. They plot to kill Him, but He longs to offer up His life for them and for the whole world. Pray for those who oppose the Gospel. Despite such opposition, the Lord is at work for the good of His people.”

 

I pray: How great is Your love, O Jesus! Grant me courage in the face of all trouble. Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
