7. How did the chief priests and Pharisees seek to prevent the fulfilment of Christ's words concerning His resurrection?


"Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together
unto Pilate, saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while He was yet alive, After three days I will
rise again. Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest His disciples come
by night, and steal Him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be
worse than the first." Matt. 27: 62-64.
