It is no surprise that liberal theologians who question the      accuracy, inerrancy and infallibility of the Bible cast doubt on  many of the the events of the Passion week.

Often the historian Josephus, who lived as a contemporary in Jesus day, is recognized more as a valid source of Jewish/Roman history than God’s word. One of the things that we can thank Josephus for, who records very little about Jesus in his historical work, is that he does mention a man by the name of  Joseph Caiaphas who held the office of High Priest. This is consistent with the biblical account found in John 11:45-53; 18:14.

Credo House Ministries has a very interesting article that highlights God’s providence, specifically in the unearthing what could be the bone box of  with the biblical remains of Caiaphas.

Even if these bones are not his it does not diminish the biblical fact that the kenosis man, Jesus stood before Caiaphas the High Priest and answered precisely the question regarding His identity. “Are you the Anointed One and the Son of God”  Jesus affirmed that it was as he had said. But what is even more striking to think of is that Jesus adds that He will come again as the Exalted Christ as his judge.

Jesus said to him, “You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven.” Matthew 26:64

Waiting in joyful hope for the fulfillment of the resurrected and exalted Jesus.
