Bible: Matt 28:11-15

The Guards’ Report

28:11 While 1  they were going, some 2  of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests everything that had happened. 28:12 After 3  they had assembled with the elders and formed a plan, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 28:13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came at night and stole his body 4  while we were asleep.’ 28:14 If 5  this matter is heard before the governor, 6  we will satisfy him 7  and keep you out of trouble.” 8  28:15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story is told among the Jews to this day. 9
