The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMark 15:1
And straightway in the morning…
As soon as it was break
of day, or daylight appeared:
the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and Scribes;
who were the principal men in the sanhedrim:
and the whole council;
which, on this extraordinary occasion, was
convened; the result of which was, to bind Jesus, and deliver him up
to the Roman governor, to be put to death by him, as a seditious
person, and an enemy to Caesar, and accordingly they did so:
and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
The Syriac and Persic versions add, "the governor";
(See Gill on 27:1),
(See Gill on 27:2).
