When Caiaphas saw Flavius bring this Rabbi from Galilee in, he raised his hand and quieted the seventy men behind him. Instead of a so called King, he looked upon a young bearded man in a tattered cloak whose face looked swollen from being struck there already. While the prisoner stood before him silent with his head down, several people came forward and began saying all kinds of things about this silent Rabbi. Caiaphas knew these people were false witnesses and were supposed to say lies but none of their statements could sustain a charge against the Rabbi. When the final two witnesses spoke up, Caiaphas knew he had finally heard what he had been waiting for.
