John makes a rather startling editorial comment in this chapter. Caiaphas, high priest, spoke before the Sanhedrin with reference to Jesus: "You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish." Then John makes this amazing statement: "He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation, and not only for that nation but also for the scattered children of God, to bring them together and make them one."

Was Caiaphas a prophet? What did Caiaphas himself mean when he made that statement? Was it the same as the meaning given it by John?

These are the technical notes by J. C. Ryle that accompany his expository comments on John chapter 11.
