the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened.
12 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they
gave the soldiers a large sum of money,

stole him away while we were asleep.'


"The obvious claims of the guards" are obviously not eye-witness accounts and
are, in fact, self-contradictory since people who are asleep see nothing.
