Matthew 26:3

Overview - Matthew 26
Christ foretells his own death.
The rulers conspire against him.
The woman anoints his feet.
14 Judas bargains to betray him.
17 Christ eats the passover;
26 institutes his holy supper;
30 foretells the desertion of his disciples, and Peter's denial;
36 prays in the garden;
47 and being betrayed by a kiss,
57 is carried to Caiaphas,
69 and denied of Peter.

This was Joseph, surnamed Caiaphas, who succeeded Simon son of Camith, in the high-priesthood, about A
D. 25. About two years after our Lord's death, he was deposed by Vitellius governor of Syria; and unable to bear his disgrace, and perhaps the stings of conscience for the murder of Christ, he killed himself about A
D. 35.
