So there gathered in the secret chambers of the High Priest all the chief priests
and elders of the people, and there was numbered among them: Ananus Ben Seth, Joseph
Caiaphas, Ismael Ben Phali, Eleazar Ben Haman, Jonathan Ben Ananus, and Simon Ben
Kambith the chief scribe and a teacher of the law.
Summary: Eleazar Ben Haman was one of the elders included among those that gathered
secretly with Caiaphas, the Chief Priest, to plot against John the Baptizer and Yeshua.
Eleazar was present for at least two meeting, which meetings were convened to hear
the reports of Judas of Kerioth, a member of the Sicarii (Y:7:67) who was commissioned
by the chief priests to spy on John the Baptizer and Yeshua (Y:1:50-53; Y:5:25).
Now when the Feast of the Law was come, there came unto Jerusalem Judas of Kerioth;
for he was numbered among the Seventy which the Lord had sent throughout the regions
And Judas went straightway into the temple that he might make some report concerning
that Nazarene of whom all Israel spoke.
And when he was come unto the temple, he entered into the secret chamber of the chief
priests and scribes;
And there gathered to hear him the High Priest, Joseph Caiaphas; and with him also
were Ananus Ben Seth his father-in-law, Ismael Ben Phali, Eleazar Ben Haman, Simon
Ben Kambith, and Jonathan Ben Ananus.
For they sought eagerly to find some way whereby they might kill Yeshua secretly.
So Judas told them all which the Master did throughout all Galilee and in the cities
