While he was still speaking to him, the king asked, "Have we made you the king's counselor? Stop, why should you lose your life?" So the prophet stopped, but he said, "I know that God intends to destroy you, because you have done this and have not listened to my advice."
Then Amaziah said to Amos, "Go away, you seer! Flee to the land of Judah. Earn your living and give [your] prophecies there,

So the chief priests and the Pharisees convened the Sanhedrin and said, "What are we going to do since this man does many signs?
If we let Him continue in this way, everybody will believe in Him! Then the Romans will come and remove both our place and our nation."
One of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all!
