Courts / Sanhedrin


The courts were the Jewish supreme Sanhedrin in Jerusalem and the local Sanhedrin in each village next to the synagogue. The literal meaning of Sanhedrin is “sitting together” or assembly. The Jews established Sanhedrin after the Babylonian exile with religious, civil, and criminal jurisdiction over the Israelites. Each city in the ancient land of Israel had a Sanhedrin comprising twenty-three rabbis. So, this prediction implied the persecution from the Jewish community to which the early Christians belonged.
