“Caiaphas is stating the same political reason we have given for the scapegoat: to limit violence as much as possible but to turn to it, if necessary, as a last resort to avoid an even great violence. Caiaphas is the incarnation of politics at its best, not its worst. No one has even been a better politician” (Girard, The Scapegoat, p. 113).
