Summary: One of the leading authorities of the Sanhedrin during the days of Yeshua,
Gamaliel was among a group sent by temple rulers to question John the Baptizer regarding
his prophetic ministry (Yeshua 1:25-48).
And Gamaliel, hearing this, spoke, saying: “Are you then that Elijah, sent to prepare
the way of the Lord?”
And John answered: “I am the voice of him that crieth in the wilderness: Prepare
you the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
For at his coming shall every valley be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall
be made low, and the crooked path shall he make straight, and the rough and broken
places shall he make fair and beautiful.
For the glory of the Father shall be revealed from above, and all flesh shall see
it, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.
Rise forth, O Zion, and rejoice, for I bring you good tidings. Get thee up, O Jerusalem,
stand you forth even as a bride upon the holy mount and lift up your voice with shouts
of hosanna and be not afraid any longer; at his coming proclaim aloud unto the cities
of Judah: Behold your God!”
