Show Notes

Joseph Caiaphas was the Jewish high priest during the time of Jesus’ ministry and a few years afterwards. He was a strong opponent of Jesus and His message.


Caiaphas was the son-in-law of Annas, the former high priest, which may have accounted for his own rise to power. Caiaphas was also a member of one of the ruling Jewish sects, the Sadducees.


When the Jewish leaders had Jesus arrested at Passover, they first brought Him before Annas. After he had questioned Jesus, Annas sent Jesus to his son-in-law Caiaphas, who as the high priest would be the one to rule on Jesus’ fate.


Even after the resurrection of Jesus, Caiaphas continued to persecute the followers of Christ.


Scriptures referenced include Matthew 26:2; John 11:47-52; Leviticus 24:16; John 18:13; Matthew 26:59–67; Matthew 27:20-35; Acts 4:1–22.
