The Guards Report What They Witnessed
11 After the women left the tomb, a few of the guards went into Jerusalem and told the chief priests everything they had seen and heard. 12 So the chief priests called a meeting with all the religious leaders and came up with a plan. They bribed the guards with a large sum of money 13 and told them, “Tell everyone, ‘While we were asleep, his disciples came at night and stole his body!’ 14 If Pilate finds out about this, don’t worry. We’ll make sure you don’t get blamed.” 15 So they took the money and did as they were told. (That is why the story of the guards is still circulated among the Jews to this day.)
