Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 28:12

_ _ And when they were assembled with the elders — But Joseph at least was absent: Gamaliel probably also; and perhaps others.

_ _ and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers — It would need a good deal; but the whole case of the Jewish authorities was now at stake. With what contempt must these soldiers have regarded the Jewish ecclesiastics!
