«It is better one man dies than the whole nation perishes (In 11:
50). Caiaphas' sentence goes beyond ethical principles and
religious expectations. It appears as the saying of a cynic
politician. Besides, it is seen as the perfidious advice of a
corrupted high priest to the members of the Sanhedrin. Who is this
man on whose saying a school is formed? Who is this man who played
the most important role in the death of Jesus? Indeed Caiaphas'
sentence gives rise to the following relevant question: is the
prohibition of killing (Dt. 5: 17), even the killing of a single
individual in order to save a whole nation, legitimate? Thus, many
issues that are associated with this high priest are associated
with Jesus. The book is mainly an exegetical and comparative
analysis of Jn 11: 45-54 and the Akan myth of the crossing of the
river. By providing new theological insights into Caiaphas link to
Jesus' death, it gives pertinent answers to the above questions.
