The attractive church here marks the spot thought to be the house of Caiaphas the High Priest, where Jesus was taken for his first trial after his arrest. There are ruins beneath the church of a basement which may have been used as a prison to hold Jesus for part of that night. Next to the church is a first-century staircase on which Jesus may have been brought from the Garden of Gethsemane to Caiaphas' house. This is also the place where Peter denied Christ three times before the rooster crowed.

There is much here to show the authenticity of this spot as the site of the house of Caiaphas. If you know your scripture, walking through and seeing the interior below ground level will move you to think about Jesus' last days on earth. The church itself is nice but not the highlight of the stop. Seeing the deep pit and the caves brings so much to life. Outside you can see the steps down that Jesus would have walked on - now protected. A place to stop and contemplate the Bible's teachings for sure.
