46 AD), known simply as Caiaphas (Hebrew: יוֹסֵף בַּר קַיָּפָא Yōsēf bar Qayyāfāʾ; Greek: Καϊάφας) in the New Testament, was the Jewish high priest who, according to the gospels, organized a plot to kill Jesus . He famously presided over the Sanhedrin trial of Jesus .
Matthew 2:16 is the sixteenth verse of the second chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament. Joseph and Mary had been visited by an angel and told that Herod would attempt to kill Jesus , their son.
According to the Gospels, the Sanhedrin, an elite council of priestly and lay elders, arrested Jesus during the Jewish festival of Passover, deeply threatened by his teachings. They dragged him before Pilate to be tried for blasphemy—for claiming, they said, to be King of the Jews.
Hebrew was the language of scholars and the scriptures. But Jesus’s “everyday” spoken language would have been Aramaic . And it is Aramaic that most biblical scholars say he spoke in the Bible.
Caiaphas then tried a different tack and asked Jesus flat out, “Are you the Messiah?” According to Mark, Jesus replied, “I am,” and then cited from the Book of Daniel and the Psalms: “You will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of ‘the Power,’ and ‘coming with the clouds of heaven’” (Psalms 110:1; Daniel 7:13-

King Herod . Herod ruled Judea from 37 BC. The Bible says he initiated a murder of all the infants in Bethlehem in an attempt to get rid of the baby Jesus.
Jesus is recognized to be the Son of God on two separate occasions by a voice speaking from Heaven. Jesus is explicitly and implicitly described as the Son of God by himself and by various individuals who appear in the New Testament. Jesus is called ” son of God ,” while followers of Jesus are called, ” sons of God “.
Jesus’ name in Hebrew was “ Yeshua ” which translates to English as Joshua . So how did we get the name “Jesus”?
The essential uses of the name of God the Father in the New Testament are Theos (θεός the Greek term for God ), Kyrios (i.e. Lord in Greek) and Patēr (πατήρ i.e. Father in Greek). The Aramaic word “Abba” (אבא), meaning “Father” is used by Jesus in Mark 14:36 and also appears in Romans 8:15 and Galatians 4:6.
The Adamic language , according to Jewish tradition (as recorded in the midrashim) and some Christians, is the language spoken by Adam (and possibly Eve) in the Garden of Eden .
The villages of Nazareth and Capernaum in Galilee, where Jesus spent most of his time, were Aramaic – speaking communities. It is also likely that Jesus knew enough Koine Greek to converse with those not native to Judea, and it is reasonable to assume that Jesus was well versed in Hebrew for religious purposes.
