גַּמְלִיאֵל הַזָּקֵן הַנָשִׂיא

Ja•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ  ha-Za•qeinꞋ, the Nã•siꞋ,, 1st century C.E. grandson of Hi•leilꞋ ha-Za•qeinꞋ, "the Babylonian".

In the Biblical era, the גָּמָל was the equivalent of today's "big rig"; the heavy haulers, freight transporters, the ancient trucking, train and air transport industries combined—the vehicles that "delivered", got things done; the backbone of the economy and civilization. From this background, the verb גָּמַל developed to mean "do or render, to deliver pay, reward or recompence"; i.e., deliver the goods.

According to Yō•khãn•ãnꞋ Bën-Za•kaiꞋ,

“From the death of Ja•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ ha-Za•qeinꞋ [c 50 CE], kã•vōdꞋ Tōr•ãhꞋ was abrogated; tã•hãrꞋãh and Pᵊrish•ūtꞋ died.”

A priori, when Ja•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ  ha-Za•qeinꞋ interceded on behalf of the ta•lᵊmid•imꞋ of RibꞋi Yᵊhō•shūꞋa, this documented that:

  1. despite the cascade of imprecations from the Roman-sycophant Hellenist Tzᵊdōq•imꞋ, which were later incorporated in the Καινής Διαθήκης, not only had RibꞋi Yᵊhō•shūꞋa remained faithful to the Pᵊrūsh•iꞋ teachings of Ja•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ  ha-Za•qeinꞋ, the Tan•ãꞋ and Nã•siꞋ,, as well as his grandfather, Hi•leilꞋ ha-Za•qeinꞋ, ha-Bã•vᵊl•iꞋ, and

  2. the ta•lᵊmid•imꞋ of RibꞋi Yᵊhō•shūꞋa (a documented ta•lᵊmidꞋ of Ja•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ  ha-Za•qeinꞋ, ha-Nã•siꞋ­),unlike the Christians of the Apostate Paul's "Theophany"—remained faithful to the teachings of Ja•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ  ha-Za•qeinꞋ, the Tan•ãꞋ and Nã•siꞋ, (as well as Hi•leilꞋ ha-Za•qeinꞋ, "the Babylonian".

Even historical Church documents prove that teachings of the historical Yᵊhud•iꞋ of Beit-Dã•widꞋ, RibꞋi Yᵊhō•shūꞋa, have, since the Apostate Paul, been wildly Hellenized by the Church. The earliest extant Church historian, Eusëbios, documented that the original Nᵊtzãr•imꞋ accepted only "Hebrew Ma•titᵊyãhꞋu" (i.e. Nᵊtzãr•imꞋ accepted only The Nᵊtzãrim Reconstruction of Hebrew Matitᵊyãhu) as legitimate. When the true teachings of RibꞋi Yᵊhō•shūꞋa are seen limited to NHM, rejecting the entirety of the Apostate Paul's Καινής Διαθήκης), then it becomes clear that RibꞋi Yᵊho•shuꞋa's teachings reflect the pristine Tōr•ãhꞋ traditions of the grandfather of Ja•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ ha-Za•qeinꞋ, ha-Nã•siꞋ —namely, Hi•leilꞋ ha-Za•qeinꞋ, ha-Nã•siꞋ who mentored RibꞋi Yᵊho•shuꞋa!!!

A fortiori, the intercession of Hi•leilꞋ ha-Za•qeinꞋ's grandson, on behalf of RibꞋi Yᵊho•shuꞋa's ta•lᵊmid•imꞋ suggest that RibꞋi Yᵊho•shuꞋa, in addition to his youthful education in Egyptian exile (a priori at the greatest university for its time in all of world history: The Musaeum of Alexandria), was personally mentored by Hi•leilꞋ 

Filtering, as far as possible, all Christian redactions and interpretations and translating directly from the earliest extant source documents to reconstruct my unpublished book, Hebrew Ma•a•vãrꞋ 5.34-40:

"Then a certain man of the rabbinic-Pᵊrush•imꞋ in the Beit-Din ha-Jã•dōlꞋ, named Ga•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ, who was a teacher of Tōr•ãhꞋ esteemed by all of the am, rose up and ordered that the [Nᵊtzãr•imꞋ] Shᵊlikh•imꞋ be excused from [the proceedings] for a short time. Then he addressed the Beit-Din ha-Jã•dōlꞋ saying,

'Men, Bᵊn•eiꞋ-Yi•sᵊr•ã•eilꞋ, take heed to yourselves what you intend to impose upon these men; for in earlier days [Hellenist] Theudas rose up claiming to be the Mã•shiꞋakh and had a following of about 400 men. He was taken up, and as many as were persuaded by him dispersed and came to nothing. After him, in the days of the census, Yᵊhud•ãhꞋ of the Gã•lilꞋ rose up and incited the am to stray and follow him. But he was finally brought to an end and as many as were persuaded by him dispersed. And now I tell you, Turn aside from these men, tolerate them, because if this counsel or this work is of men it will cease. But if it be of Ël•oh•imꞋ, then you will not be able to make them cease and, in that case, you would also be found to be fighters against Ël•oh•imꞋ…'

"So the Pᵊrush•imꞋ-dominated Beit-Din ha-Jã•dōlꞋ was persuaded by him but, having recalled the Shᵊlikh•imꞋ, the Hellenist pseudo-Tzᵊdōq•im whipped them and conveyed instructions to them that they should not speak in the name of RibꞋi Yᵊhō•shuꞋa, and released them."

Until ca. 20 C.E., the Beit-Din ha-Jã•dōlꞋ had been predominated by the Hellenist pseudo-Tzᵊdōq•imꞋ. It wasn't Pᵊrush•imꞋ (predecessors of today's Orthodox rabbis) who defied the explicit instruction of their first, and very own, Pᵊrush•imꞋ Nã•siꞋ, Ga•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ, and the Beit-Din ha-Jã•dōlꞋ to whip the Nᵊtzãr•imꞋ or order them to cease.

As a result, the Tzᵊdoq•imꞋ ignored the early Pᵊrush•imꞋ chain of MiꞋshᵊnãh tradition (RabꞋi Hi•leilꞋ to Ga•mᵊl•i•eilꞋ to his protégé to whom he had granted sᵊmikh•ãhꞋ, RibꞋi Yᵊho•shuꞋa, subsequently to Yō•khãn•ãnꞋ Bën-Za•kaiꞋ), emphasizing their own Beit Sha•maiꞋ v Beit Hi•leilꞋ, avoiding naming individuals to refer, instead, only to the schools collectively.

At YaꞋvᵊn•ëh, the rabbis decreed that the opinion of Sadducean Beit Sha•maiꞋ Sr. (simply "they" or "sages" in Ta•lᵊmūdꞋ , as distinguished from Pᵊrush•imꞋ Rab•imꞋ), when it conflicts with that of Beit Hi•leilꞋ (particularly regarding conversion), is no Mi•shᵊn•ãhꞋ. ( Ma•sëkꞋët Bᵊrãkh•ōtꞋ 36b) & the Ha•lãkh•ãhꞋ was always according to Beit Hi•leilꞋ, & whoever acted contrary to the views of Beit Hi•leilꞋ deserves death. (Ta•lᵊmūdꞋ Yᵊrū•sha•lᵊm•iꞋ Ma•sëkꞋët Bᵊrãkh•ōtꞋ 1.7, 3b; et al.)!
