Some evidence is needed to back the claim that Annas was influential after 15 AD.
The account given in the Gospel of John is evidence of Annas' ongoing influence. Chbrooking (talk) 18:42, 18 June 2013 (UTC) The reason proffered for Annas' removal from office by Gratus cannot be substantiated from historical literature. Elder Bunch does not, in the work cited, provide a reference for his claim, and it appears to be mere speculation on his part. Chbrooking (talk) 18:42, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
