They all took counsel against him.
St. Mark's version of the handing over of Jesus tells us that the entire council handed him over. It was for envy that they did. And so also is fallen human nature itself wont to reject its help, wanting instead to take credit, or glory, or the work done. Yet the nature of God's grace is that he does the work anyway, to work our salvation for us. So let us follow gladly, saying, "Our help is in the name of the Lord." The sermon.
