In November 1990, in a burial cave in the south of Jerusalem, construction workers made an amazing discovery. They discovered a burial cave and in side they found a beautiful ossuary containing the bones of the famous high priest Caiaphas. The very same person in John 18:12. Caiaphas the High Priest, who was one of Annas’ son in laws. and involved with Annas in the arrest of Jesus.
HERE WE HAVE ABSOLUTELY ROCK SOLID EVIDENCE yet again of a man who was mentioned many times in the new testament, who met Jesus face to face.
What is also interesting, is we know that the Ancient Jews gathered bones into bone boxes called ossuaries after a year or so. WHY? Because they believed by preserving there bones they would be ready for the resurrection. And remember that Caiaphas and Annas’ and sons did not believe in the resurrection.
They denied the resurrection of the body in Mat 22:23, Luke 20:27, Acts 4:1-2, 23:8.
