Sermon: False Witnesses Testify about Resurrection

Mark 14:55-59 -- The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin kept looking for testimony against Jesus to put him to death, and they weren't finding any. For many were testifying falsely against him, and there testimony didn't agree.

After standing up, some were falsely testifying, “We heard him say, ‘I will tear down this man-made temple and within three days I will build one not made by man.’” Not even in this did their testimony agree.
