Question: What is a sanhedrin?

Answer: Sanhedrin comes from the Greek term sunedrion (literally, 'sitting together') meaning council. The Sanhedrin is both a Jewish judicial and administrative body.

According to gospel accounts, Jesus was brought before the Jerusalem Sanhedrin, presided over by high priest Joseph Caiaphas.
