Many Jews believed in Jesus, so that some people reported this to the Pharisees. The Jewish council or Sanhedrin took up this question. They were afraid that the Romans would come. Caiaphas, the high priest, said that one man should die to save others. Thus, Jesus should die to save their country from a Roman invasion. They planned to kill Jesus, so that Jesus did not walk around openly. Would you walk around if people were planning to kill you?
