Acts 18:17

Context
18:17 So they all seized Sosthenes, the president of the synagogue, 1  and began to beat 2  him in front of the judgment seat. 3  Yet none of these things were of any concern 4  to Gallio.

1 tn That is, “the official in charge of the synagogue”; ἀρχισυνάγωγος (arcisunagwgo") refers to the “leader/president of a synagogue” (so BDAG 139 s.v. and L&N 53.93).

sn See the note on synagogue in 6:9.

2 tn The imperfect verb ἔτυπτον (etupton) has been translated as an ingressive imperfect.

3 sn See the note on the term judgment seat in 18:12.

4 tn L&N 25.223 has “‘none of these things were of any concern to Gallio’ Ac 18:17.”

sn Rome was officially indifferent to such disputes. Gallio understood how sensitive some Jews would be about his meddling in their affairs. This is similar to the way Pilate dealt with Jesus. In the end, he let the Jewish leadership and people make the judgment against Jesus.
