tn Normally <font face="Galaxie Unicode Greek">&#7936;&#961;&#967;&#953;&#963;&#965;&#957;&#940;&#947;&#969;&#947;&#959;&#962;font> (<font face="Greektl">arcisunagwgo&quot;font>) refers to the &#8220;<i>president of a synagoguei>&#8221; (so BDAG 139 s.v. and L&amp;N 53.93). Since the term is plural here, however, and it would sound strange to the English reader to speak of &#8220;the presidents of the synagogue,&#8221; the alternative translation &#8220;leaders&#8221; is used. &#8220;Rulers&#8221; would also be acceptable, but does not convey quite the same idea.

(0.25)(Isa 28:6)

tn <i>Hebi> &#8220;and [he will become] a spirit of justice for the one who sits [i.e., presides] over judgment, // and strength [for] the ones who turn back battle at the city gate.&#8221; The Lord will provide internal stability and national security.

(0.25)(Zec 3:7)

sn The statement <i>you will be able to preside over my templei> (<i>Hebi> &#8220;house,&#8221; a reference to the Jerusalem temple) is a hint of the increasingly important role the high priest played in the postexilic Jewish community, especially in the absence of a monarchy. It also suggests the messianic character of the eschatological priesthood in which the priest would have royal prerogatives.

tn The phrase <font face="Galaxie Unicode Hebrew">&#1506;&#1458;&#1491;&#1463;&#1514; &#1488;&#1461;&#1500;font> (&#8217;<font face="Scholar">adatfont> &#8217;<font face="Scholar">elfont>, &#8220;assembly of El&#8221;) appears only here in the OT. (1) Some understand &#8220;El&#8221; to refer to God himself. In this case he is pictured presiding over his own heavenly assembly. (2) Others take <font face="Galaxie Unicode Hebrew">&#1488;&#1461;&#1500;font> as a superlative here (&#8220;God stands in the <i>greati> assembly&#8221;), as in Pss 36:6 and 80:10. (3) The present translation assumes this is a reference to the Canaanite high god El, who presided over the Canaanite divine assembly. (See Isa 14:13, where El&#8217;s assembly is called &#8220;the stars of El.&#8221;) In the Ugaritic myths the phrase &#8217;<font face="Scholar">dtfont> &#8217;<font face="Scholar">ilmfont> refers to the &#8220;assembly of the gods,&#8221; who congregate in King Kirtu&#8217;s house, where Baal asks El to bless Kirtu&#8217;s house (see G. R. Driver, <i>Canaanite Myths and Legendsi>, 91). If the Canaanite divine assembly is referred to here in Ps 82:1, then the psalm must be understood as a bold polemic against Canaanite religion. Israel&#8217;s God invades El&#8217;s assembly, denounces its gods as failing to uphold justice, and announces their coming demise. For an interpretation of the psalm along these lines, see W. VanGemeren, &#8220;Psalms,&#8221; <i>EBCi> 5:533-36.

(0.16)(Lev 7:32)

tn Older English versions (e.g., KJV, ASV) translate this Hebrew term (<font face="Galaxie Unicode Hebrew">&#1514;&#1468;&#1456;&#1512;&#1493;&#1468;&#1502;&#1464;&#1492;font>, <font face="Scholar">t&#255;rumahfont>) &#8220;heave offering,&#8221; derived from the idea of &#8220;to raise, to lift&#8221; found in the verbal root (cf. NAB &#8220;a raised offering&#8221;). &#8220;Contribution offering&#8221; is a better English rendering because it refers to something &#8220;taken out from&#8221; (i.e., &#8220;lifted up from&#8221;; cf. the Hebrew term <font face="Galaxie Unicode Hebrew">&#1492;&#1461;&#1512;&#1460;&#1497;&#1501;font> (<font face="Scholar">herimfont>) in, e.g., Lev 2:9; 4:8, etc.) the offering as a special contribution to the specific priest who presided over the offering procedures in any particular instance (see the next verse and R. E. Averbeck, <i>NIDOTTEi> 4:335-37). Cf. TEV &#8220;as a special contribution&#8221;; NCV, NLT &#8220;as a gift.&#8221;

(0.16)(Joh 11:47)

tn Or &#8220;Sanhedrin&#8221; (the Sanhedrin was the highest legal, legislative, and judicial body among the Jews). The <font face="Galaxie Unicode Greek">&#963;&#965;&#957;&#941;&#948;&#961;&#953;&#959;&#957;font> (<font face="Greektl">sunedrionfont>) which they gathered was probably an informal meeting rather than the official Sanhedrin. This is the only occurrence of the word <font face="Galaxie Unicode Greek">&#963;&#965;&#957;&#941;&#948;&#961;&#953;&#959;&#957;font> in the Gospel of John, and the only anarthrous singular use in the NT. There are other plural anarthrous uses which have the general meaning &#8220;councils.&#8221; The fact that Caiaphas in 11:49 is referred to as &#8220;one of them&#8221; supports the unofficial nature of the meeting; in the official Sanhedrin he, being high priest that year, would have presided over the assembly. Thus it appears that an informal council was called to discuss what to do about Jesus and his activities.

(0.13)(Joh 18:13)

sn Jesus was taken first to <i>Annasi>. Only the Gospel of John mentions this pretrial hearing before Annas, and that Annas was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who is said to be high priest in that year. Caiaphas is also mentioned as being high priest in John 11:49. But in 18:15, 16, 19, and 22 Annas is called high priest. Annas is also referred to as high priest by Luke in Acts 4:6. Many scholars have dismissed these references as mistakes on the part of both Luke and John, but as mentioned above, John 11:49 and 18:13 indicate that John knew that Caiaphas was high priest in the year that Jesus was crucified. This has led others to suggest that Annas and Caiaphas shared the high priesthood, but there is no historical evidence to support this view. Annas had been high priest from <sc>a.d.sc> 6 to <sc>a.d.sc> 15 when he was deposed by the Roman prefect Valerius Gratus (according to Josephus, <i>Ant.i> 18.2.2 [18.34]). His five sons all eventually became high priests. The family was noted for its greed, wealth, and power. There are a number of ways the references in both Luke and John to Annas being high priest may be explained. Some Jews may have refused to recognize the changes in high priests effected by the Roman authorities, since according to the Torah the high priesthood was a lifetime office (Num 25:13). Another possibility is that it was simply customary to retain the title after a person had left the office as a courtesy, much as retired ambassadors are referred to as &#8220;Mr. Ambassador&#8221; or ex-presidents as &#8220;Mr. President.&#8221; Finally, the use of the title by Luke and John may simply be a reflection of the real power behind the high priesthood of the time: Although Annas no longer technically held the office, he may well have managed to control those relatives of his who did hold it from behind the scenes. In fact this seems most probable and would also explain why Jesus was brought to him immediately after his arrest for a sort of &#8220;pretrial hearing&#8221; before being sent on to the entire Sanhedrin.

(0.12)(Lev 7:37)

sn The inclusion of the &#8220;ordination offering&#8221; (<font face="Galaxie Unicode Hebrew">&#1502;&#1460;&#1500;&#1468;&#1493;&#1468;&#1488;&#1460;&#1497;&#1501;font>, <font face="Scholar">milufont>&#8217;<font face="Scholar">imfont>; the term apparently comes from the notion of &#8220;filling [of the hand],&#8221; cf. Lev 8:33) here anticipates Lev 8. It is a kind of peace offering, as the regulations in Lev 8:22-32 will show (cf. Exod 29:19-34). In the context of the ordination ritual for the priests it fits into the sequence of offerings as a peace offering would: sin offering (Lev 8:14-17), burnt and grain offering (Lev 8:18-21), and finally peace (i.e., ordination) offering (Lev 8:22-32). Moreover, in this case, Moses received the breast of the ordination offering as his due since he was the presiding priest over the sacrificial procedures (Lev 8:29; cf. Lev 7:30-31), while Aaron and his sons ate the portions that would have been consumed by the common worshipers in a regular peace offering procedure (Exod 29:31-34; cf. Lev 7:15-18). For a general introduction to the peace offering see the note on Lev 3:1.
