English translation

Die Schar aber und der Oberhauptmann und die Diener der Jüden nahmen Jesum und bunden ihn und führeten ihn aufs erste zu Hannas, der was Kaiphas Schwäher, welcher des Jahres Hoherpriester war. Es war aber Kaiphas, der den Juden riet, es wäre gut, daß ein Mensch würde umbracht für das Volk.
The band, however, and the captain and the servants of the Jews took Jesus and bound Him and led Him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year. It was Caiaphas, however, who counselled the Jews, that it would be good for one man to be destroyed for the people.
