  Gamaliel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Talmud, this Gamaliel bears the title "Rabban", a rabbinic title given to the Nasi (head) of the Sanhedrin, of which he is the first of seven appointed leaders of that school of Hillel which earned the title.
Gamaliel I held a reputation of one of the greatest teachers in the annals of Judaism.
Gamaliel is represented in Acts (5:34ff), as advising his fellow-members of the Sanhedrin not to put to death Saint Peter and the Apostles for preaching the Gospel.

Gamaliel appears as the head of the legal-religious body in the three epistles which he at one time dictated to the secretary Johanan (account of Judah b.
Tradition does not represent Gamaliel as learned in the Scriptures, nor as a teacher, because the school of Hillel, whose head he undoubtedly was, always appears collectively in its controversies with the school of Shammai, and the individual scholars and their opinions are not mentioned.
Hence Gamaliel is omitted in the chain of tradition as given in the Mishnah (Abot i., ii.), while Johanan b.

 Gamaliel
Gamaliel was the son of Rabbi Simeon and the grandson of the famous Hillel who had founded Israel's strongest religious school.
Gamaliel was the head of the Hillel school at the time of Jesus' ministry and presided over the Sanhedrin during the reigns of Tiberius, Caius and Claudias.
The apostle Paul had studied "at the feet of Gamaliel and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers." The liberal school of Hillel taught the law with a pragmatic humane interpretation and was in contrast to the conservatism and excessive legalism of the school of Shammai.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Gamaliel
Gamaliel is represented in Acts, v, 34 sqq., as advising his fellow-members of the Sanhedrin not to put to death St. Peter and the Apostles, who, notwithstanding the prohibition of the Jewish authorities, had continued to preach to the people.
Gamaliel is rightly identified with an illustrious Jewish doctor of the Law, who bore the same name and died eighteen years before the destruction of Jerusalem.
In the Talmud, this Gamaliel bears, like his grandfather Hillel, the surname of "the Elder", and is the first to whom the title "Rabban", "our master", was given.

 Beware of the Counsel of Gamaliel!
Gamaliel was a leading Pharisee, a doctor of the law, and a member of the Jewish Sanhedrin, who possessed great influence between AD 20 and 58.
Gamaliel's absurd counsel was not due to his being a foolish man, for he was a renowned scholar and thinker.
The use of the counsel of Gamaliel in defense of a "do-nothing" or "run-with-the-tide" approach to any new fad is a sure sign of a person who has an inadequate respect for Scripture as the authoritative judge of all matters.

 Beware of the Counsel of Gamaliel!
Gamaliel's Intervention Is it true that when the furious Jewish leaders were about to execute the apostles, Gamaliel intervened to save them.
Gamaliel, to support his plea to do nothing, mentioned the cases of two rebel leaders who had been killed (apparently by the Roman authorities), with the result that their influence soon waned.
Gamaliel further warned that if the movements was from God, to kill the disciples would be to fight against Him.

 Gamaliel's Principle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Gamaliel's principle can be compared to Aristotle's famous remark that we should not count a man happy (blessed?) until he is dead, recognizing that the meaning and truth of the events in a man's life may not be evident at the time of occurrence, but may become clear in the future.
From a strictly tactical standpoint, the reference to Gamaliel here is slightly puzzling, because Paul's intent was clearly to begin by re-assuring the crowd of his impeccable pedigree, his solid grounding in "the laws of the father", and even pointing out that he had been a zealous persecutor of the followers of Jesus.
If it was remembered that Gamaliel had literally saved the lives of Peter and the other apostles of Jesus, it would be strange for Paul to cite Gamaliel - in effect, a known sympathizer - at that point in his address.

 Guidance From Gamaliel
Gamaliel was highly revered in Judaism, even though he was regarded as being one of the leading liberals of his day.
Gamaliel was consulted by the Herods on occasion concerning matters of Jewish law, and was regarded so highly by the Sanhedrin that they would often defer action on some matter until they could gain his advice or approval.
Gamaliel, in keeping with his policy of moderation and non-aggression, urged his fellow members of the high council to "take care what you propose to do with these men" (vs. 35).

The most eminent ornament of this school was Gamaliel, whose fame is celebrated in the Talmud.
Hillel was the father of Simeon, and Simeon the father of Gamaliel.
It is difficult to give a conclusive proof of this; but there is no doubt that this Gamaliel was the same who wisely pleaded the cause of St. Peter and the other apostles (Acts 5:34-40), and who had previously educated the future apostle St. Paul (Acts 22:3).

The bright, curving falchion known as Gamaliel (guh-MAY-lee-EL) is the most recent of a long line of weapons that have served as host to the "gemstone" embodying the power that once infused the legendary White Sword carried by the paladin Üth P'nan.
Gamaliel is the current Keeper of the White Sword, though other host weapons, having been divested of Apon's Tear in order to craft a weapon more favorable for a new wielder, may already exist.
As a holy weapon, Gamaliel is considered to be good-aligned and thus bypasses the corresponding damage reduction.

Gamaliel says that T's followers 'rallied to him' (a more political sounding term); Josephus says T.'s followers took their effects and were migrating to the river Jordan.
Gamaliel says that after T was killed, "all his followers dispersed", but Josephus says that many of the followers were killed by the Roman troop of horsemen, and that many of them were likewise captured and arrested.
Therefore, the reference by Gamaliel to the minor exploits of a Theudas was not necessarily historically illegitimate or confused.
