Luke 22:66 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 22:66

And as soon as it was day
(See Gill on Matthew 27:1).

The elders of the people;
or "the presbytery of the people", that were chosen from among the people to sit in the sanhedrim; the Israelites, as distinct from priests and Levites, and the doctors:

and the chief priests and the Scribes came together;
which made up the great sanhedrim, or council of the nation:

and led him into their council;
or sanhedrim, the place where the sanhedrim sat, which was in the temple, and in the chamber called (tyzgh tkvl) , "the paved stone chamber" F14; here they usually met, and so the Persic version renders it, "where their congregation was daily there".
