2 Part of the trial of Jesus from a Jewish point of view: The Arrest of Jesus

In the context of the question whether there has been a trial of Jesus before the Sanhedrin, is already of interest, who arrested Jesus that night, the Roman occupying power or Jews in preparation for the planned process.

2.1. The reports of the Gospels

The latest incidents after the Gospels as follows: Jesus and the disciples left after the "Last Supper" Jerusalem, went to the Mount of Olives (Mk 14, 26, Mt 26 30, Lk 22, 39) and came to a place called Gethsemane (Mk 14 32, Mt 26, 36). In this place it may have been to the same place, which is described in John (18, 1) as a garden beyond the Kidronbaches. What is important is that Jesus and his disciples have often stopped at this place (cf. Lk 22, 39, Jn 18, 2).

As Jesus said to his disciples, people suddenly appeared, led by Judas. The Evangelists describe these people as follows: according to Mark (14, 43) and Matthew (26, 47) it was an armed with swords and clubs host, who had been sent by the leading priests, the teachers of the law and council elders, according to Luke (22, 47 ff), there came a crowd, Jesus, however, turned directly to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard and the Council of Elders (22, 52). John (18, 3), however, describes the emerging people as Roman soldiers, who were accompanied by some temple guards, the arrest took the Romans and the Jewish temple guards together before (18, 12).

2.2. Those involved in the arrest

Based on current knowledge, there is agreement that it has acted with the troops to a cohort and its tribune (a Roman military unit and its commander) (see P. Winter: On the trial of Jesus, pp. 44 ff; SGF Brandon : The trial of Jesus of Nazareth, p 196).

It is questionable, however, to whom it has dealt with the Jews involved, since they are even as a crowd armed with swords and clubs, once referred to as temple guardians and is partially maintained, elders and chief priests had been among the crowd.

The assertion that elders and chief priests were present at the arrest turns out to be unrealistic and exaggerated to illustrate, because an arrest is usually - and it behaved at that time - not made ​​by an elder or a judge and certainly not by many elders or judges who get together for this purpose. The authorities would have to make an arrest, of course, sent one or more trained, armed officers. The assumption, elders had been among the people proves to be not credible. It is not likely that a significant personality takes the trouble to leave a late hour of the night the town and a considerable distance uphill back down to personally a witness to the arrest of a criminal suspect, whoever was also the suspects. In particular, this must apply to this night, as this was a special night, namely the night of Passover (according to John's arrest came on the eve of Passover). That night, every Jewish house owner was busy with either the Seder (Passover), or if you dated the arrest on the eve of Passover with John to prepare this important festival and its victims. It is inconceivable that he could be lured out on a night in the mountains to attend a police action. To take into account is the fact that, really should elders and priests have been kept behind the arrest, this would hardly have been personally present, it is more likely that they would have sent their agents and officials in this case to not even seen and identified to are.

Israel tightened to holy site of Jewish extremis

JERUSALEM Apr 8, 2005 — Israeli security officials tightened access to a disputed holy site in the Old City of Jerusalem on Friday, wary of Jewish extremists trying to inflame tensions with Arabs in an effort to sabotage Israel's planned Gaza Strip withdrawal.
Jews opposed to the withdrawal want to rally Sunday at the site sacred to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Haram as-Sharif. Their plans have set both Israeli police and Palestinians on edge, and Muslim prayers Friday were being watched as a potential flashpoint.
Some 40,000 Hamas supporters from the northern Gaza Strip marched after Friday prayers to protest the planned Jewish rally and warned of an immediate resumption of violence if it went ahead

Remember in the Fall?

When I went to NY and was donating all those clothes? And I went to the temple and the jewish Y?
The chick in the office of the temple wasn't jewish. She was very nice and very helpful.
The Y is very ummm.... terrorist careful and aware. They keep guards at doors, and the security guard guy who made me sign in was black, and I'm taking a leap (of faith?) that he wasn't an Ethiopian Jew.
So, at least in NY, there are jewish places that hire non jews.
Although I do recall in high school inviting this girl Heather to the Y for an event and she said "Oh, I can't go, I'm not Jewish" and I laughed and said she didn't have to be
