Caiaphas

Caiaphas in the Bible. Caiaphas was the Jewish high priest in the land of Israel from 27 AD - 36 AD which was during the time of Jesus. His father-in-law's name was Annas. Caiaphas was a very wealthy man and had a beautiful house on a hill overlooking Jerusalem. Jesus was brought to trial at the house of Caiaphas and during the trial Caiaphas tore his robe and accused Jesus of blasphemy because Jesus claimed he was the long awaited Messiah. When Caiaphas sentenced Jesus to death he spoke a remarkable prophecy without realizing it. He said that Jesus should be put to death "for the people, and that the whole nation should not perish." (John 11:50). After this Jesus was brought to the Roman procurator Pontius Pilate.
