In the Bible, in Acts chapter 5, the Jewish authorities arrested some of the Christian leaders, and told them to stop publishing their message. They wanted to kill the Christians, but one of them – a respected leader called Gamaliel – persuaded them not to.

Gamaliel was a real person. The Jewish historian Josephus also mentions him, and later Jewish teachers wrote about him too.

Gamaliel was the grandson of a great Jewish scholar called Hillel. He was a highly respected scholar, and a leading authority in the Jewish council early in the first century AD.

Later in the book of Acts, when Paul the apostle is defending himself to hostile Jews in Jerusalem, he mentions that he had been taught by Gamaliel.
