    John 11:49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

    11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

    11:51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

    11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

    11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

    Caiaphas did not know it when he spoke, but he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation of Israel.

    Jesus would die for the iniquities Israel committed under the first covenant (Hebrews 9:15).

    The believing remnant of Israel that received Jesus as Messiah, the Son of God, who believed on him (John 3:16) and his name (John 20:31), they were the holy nation (Exodus 19:6 1 Peter 2:9), the Israel of God (Galatians 6:16), the little flock (Luke 12:32). But, it was not for that nation only that Jesus died, Jesus died for the believing remnant, the little flock that was scattered abroad into other nations.

    Jeremiah 23:3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.

    Jeremiah prophesied that Christ would bring all of the believing remnant of Israel into his fold (John 10:16).
