What does John 7:53 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 7:53

And every man went unto his own house.
] The officers not bringing Jesus with them, and the sanhedrim being posed with Nicodemus, broke up without doing any business, and every member of it went home: this we may suppose was about the time of the evening sacrifice: for

``the great sanhedrim sat from the time of the morning daily sacrifice, to the time of the evening daily sacrifice F2:''

and it is said F3, that

``after the evening daily sacrifice, the sanhedrim went, (Mtybl) , "to their own houses";''

as they now did, and not to their booths, the feast of tabernacles being now over.
