And there he abode with his disciples. 55And the pasch of the Jews was at hand: and many from the country went up to Jerusalem, before the pasch, to purify themselves. 56They sought therefore for Jesus; and they discoursed one with another, standing in the temple: What think you that he is not come to the festival day? And the chief priests and Pharisees had given a commandment that, if any man knew where he was, he should tell, that they might apprehend him.…
