{{About|the Jewish High Priest|the Indian currency unit|Indian anna}}File:Annaz - Bom Jesus.JPG|thumb|right|Statue of Annas in Bom Jesus, BragaBragaAnnas (also AnanusJosephus, The Complete Works, Thomas Nelson Publishers (Nashville, Tennessee, USA), 20.9.1 (1998) or Ananias;Annas appears in the Gospels and Passion plays as a high priest before whom Jesus is brought for judgment, prior to being brought before Pontius Pilate.

The sacerdotal family

The terms of Annas, Caiaphas, and the five brothers are:
  • Ananus (or Annas), son of Seth (6–15)

Eleazar ben Ananus

Caiaphas

(18–36 A.D.)Properly called Joseph, son of Caiaphas, who had married the daughter of Annas (John 18:13)

Jonathan ben Ananus

(36–37 and 44 A.D.)

Theophilus ben Ananus

(37–41 A.D.)

Matthias ben Ananus

Ananus ben Ananus

(63 A.D.)References in the Mosaic Law to "the death of the high priest" ({{bibleref2|Numbers|35:25, 28|NKJV}}) suggest that the high-priesthood was ordinarily held for life. Perhaps for this reason, Annas was still called "high priest" even after his dismissal, along with Caiaphas ((Luke 3:2)). He also may have been acting as president of the Sanhedrin, or a coadjutor of the high priest.

In the New Testament

{{bibleverse|Luke|3:2|KJV}} indicates a joint high priesthood "of Annas and Caiaphas" when the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness.

The plot to kill Lazarus of Bethany

The involvement of the family of Annas may be implied in the plot to kill Lazarus of Bethany in {{bibleverse|John|12:10|KJV}}. Although Annas is not mentioned by name in the plot to kill Lazarus, several 19th-century writers such as Johann Nepomuk Sepp and the Abbé Drioux, considered that there may be a concealed reference to Annas in the parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus which points at a "rich man" with five brothers ({{bibleverse|Luke|16:28|KJV}}). If it is considered that the rich man dressed in purple and fine linen (cf. {{bibleverse|Exodus|28:8|KJV}}) represents Caiaphas, as figurehead of the Sadducees, then Annas is intended by the "father" in {{bibleverse|Luke|16:27|KJV}}, and the "five brothers" {{bibleverse|Luke|16:28|KJV}} are Annas' five sons. In support of this is the coincidence that the father and five brothers who will not be convinced even if the parable Lazarus is raised from the dead ({{bibleverse|Luke|16:31|KJV}}) predict that Caiaphas, Annas, and the five sons of Annas would not believe and plotted to have the real Lazarus killed when he was raised ({{bibleverse|John|12:10|KJV}}).

The trial of Jesus

According to the Gospel of John (the event is not mentioned in other accounts), Jesus was first brought before Annas, and after a brief questioning of him ({{bibleverse|John|18:19-23|KJV}}) was sent to the home of Caiaphas, where some members of the Sanhedrin had met, and where in Matthew's account the first trial of Jesus took place ({{bibleverse|Matthew|26:57-68|KJV}}).

In the Book of Acts

After Pentecost, Annas presided over the Sanhedrin before which the Apostles Peter and John were brought ({{bibleverse|Acts|4:6|KJV}}).

Cultural references

Annas has an important role in Jesus Christ Superstar, as one of the two main antagonists of the show (the other being Caiaphas) spurring Pontius Pilate to take action against Jesus. In almost all versions, Annas has a very high voice (almost reaching falsetto) to contrast against Caiaphas' bass. Despite being Caiaphas' father-in-law, Annas is generally played by a younger actor.
