And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
All Commentaries on Mark 14:55 Go To Mark 14
George Leo Haydock
Though the law prescribed there should be only one high priest, yet at this time there were many, being appointed yearly by the Roman governor; and those are here called chief priests who had once been invested with the dignity of high priest, but were at that time out of office. (Theophylactus)
