Song: “The Old Rugged Cross”

Sermon: Caiaphas Testifies about Substitution

John 11:49-53 -- One of them, Caiaphas, being High Priest that year, said to them, “You don't know anything. Don't you consider that it's better for us that one man die for the people and not that the whole nation perishes?”

He did not speak this on his own. But being High Priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation and not only for the nation but also to gather the scattered children of God into one. So from that day on they planned to kill him.
