The chief priests and the elders of the people (and the scribes – Mark 11:27) spoke with Jesus in the temple in Jerusalem. (Matthew 21:23)

Matthew 21:42-45

Jesus (to the chief priests and the elders of the people):

Did you never read in the scriptures,

The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone;

this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?

Therefore, the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits of it.

Whoever falls on this stone shall be broken: but on whomever the stone shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

The chief priests and Pharisees heard his parables and realized that he was speaking of them.
