Many testified falsely against Jesus, but their statements did not agree.[edit]

This has always baffled me. Jesus said "I will destroy the temple". He did not tell his listeners that he was speaking of his body, not the Temple. Later the priests accused him of saying what he said. Why is that false witness? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.72.77.244 (talk) 23:21, 10 August 2013 (UTC)
