Matthew 26:60-61 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

60 but they found none, though many false witnesses came forward. Finally two[a] came forward 61 who stated, “This man said, ‘I can destroy the temple of God and within three days rebuild it.’”

Footnotes:

  1. 26:60–61 Two: cf. Dt 19:15. I can destroy…rebuild it: there are significant differences from the Marcan parallel (Mk 14:58). Matthew omits “made with hands” and “not made with hands” and changes Mark’s “will destroy” and “will build another” to can destroy and (can) rebuild. The charge is probably based on Jesus’ prediction of the temple’s destruction; see notes on Mt 23:37–39; 24:2; and Jn 2:19. A similar prediction by Jeremiah was considered as deserving death; cf. Jer 7:1–15; 26:1–8.
