Acts 5:21

Context
5:21 When they heard this, they entered the temple courts 1  at daybreak and began teaching. 2 

Now when the high priest and those who were with him arrived, they summoned the Sanhedrin 3  – that is, the whole high council 4  of the Israelites 5  – and sent to the jail to have the apostles 6  brought before them. 7 

1 tn Grk “the temple.” See the note on the same phrase in the preceding verse.

2 tn The imperfect verb ἐδίδασκον (edidaskon) has been translated as an ingressive imperfect.

3 tn Or “the council” (the highest legal, legislative, and judicial body among the Jews).

4 tn A hendiadys (two different terms referring to a single thing) is likely here (a reference to a single legislative body rather than two separate ones) because the term γερουσίαν (gerousian) is used in both 1 Macc 12:6 and Josephus, Ant. 13.5.8 (13.166) to refer to the Sanhedrin.

5 tn Grk “sons of Israel.”

6 tn Grk “have them”; the referent (the apostles) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

7 tn The words “before them” are not in the Greek text but are implied.
