Looking for Dirt

Once the Jewish Council arrested Jesus, watch what they did, “Now the chief priests and all the council sought testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, but found none” (Mark 14:55).
These supposedly righteous men sought false witnesses, people who would lie about Jesus to fit the judgment they had already made of Him. They looked for dirt. They already knew what they wanted to do with Him, but they needed to go through the proper legal procedures that they might justify their actions with the Romans that the Romans might crucify Jesus.
Similar things will happen to the followers of Jesus Christ. If you follow Him, people will lie about you. Prepare yourself for it.
