Caiaphas Ossuary

caiaphas ossuary The “Caiaphas Ossuary” was discovered in 1990 by chance during earth work on a hill south of the old city of Jerusalem. Twelve bone boxes (Ossuaries)  were founded in the burial cave. One, very ornate was inscribed, in two places, “Joseph son of Caiaphas”. Inside the box sekeletal remains of a 50 year old male were documented.  The ossuary is most likely of Caiaphas, the high priest who interogarted Jesus after the “Last Supper”, and is one of the most important finds related to both Christian and Jewish history. It is on display at the Israel Museum next to the Pilate Stone and Crucified Jehohanan.
