Gamaliel

Famous rabbi who taught Paul

A Pharisee and teacher of the law, Gamaliel was a leading figure in the world of first-century Judaism. He appears in the book of Acts, appealing for tolerance and caution when a group of apostles are brought before the Jewish ruling council in Jerusalem (Acts 5:34-40). During a speech, in Acts 22:3, Paul declares that he had been one of Gamaliel’s pupils.
