Caiaphas Was a Real Guy and All
High priest of Jerusalem is featured, er, prominently in the Gospels
A recently authenticated 2,000-year-old ossuary—who took Latin and can tell us what goes in ossuaries?—likely proves the historical existence of Caiaphas, scientists say. In the New Testament, Caiaphas is the Jewish high priest of Jerusalem who plays a crucial role in the killing of Jesus. It apparently is the ossuary of Caiaphas’s granddaughter. Scientists conducting extensive laboratory tests are convinced it is not a forgery. The scientists also, however, found nothing dispositive of the fact that Mel Gibson is still a schmuck.
