Vocabulary of the Greek NT

συνέδριον is used in late Greek to denote a ";council"; or ";assembly"; of any kind, though generally of a representative character. In the papyri the occurrences of the word are comparatively rare, but see P Par 15.22 (a judicial process—B.C. 120) παραγγελέντος αὐτοῖς ἔρχεσθαι εἰς τὸ συνέδριον, P Tebt I. 27.31 (B.C. 113) (= Chrest. I. p. 388) δι᾽ ὧν ἐδηλο ̣υ ̣̑το ἀναγκαῖον εἶναι μεταπεμφθέντων εἰς κοινὸν συνέδριον τῶν κατὰ κώμην δεκ ̣α ̣νῶν τῶν φ [υ ]λακιτῶν, ";in which it was stated to be necessary that the decani of the police in the villages should be summoned to a general meeting"; (Edd.), CP Herm I. 7ii. 6 (iii/A.D.) ἐπεὶ ᾑρέθημεν ἐν τῷ συνεδρίῳ ἀκολ (ούθως) τοῖς ὑπομνημ (ατισθεῖσι) ἐπὶ τῆ [ς κ ]ρατίστης βουλῆς κτλ., ib. 52i. 20 (iii/A.D.) πρὸς τὰ θεῖ [α ] εὐσέβε [ιαν ] ἐπινεύσειν τῇ δεήσει τοῦ κοινοῦ ἡμῶν συνεδρίου, ib. 52ii. 9 (iii/A.D.) δόξα ]ν ̣ τῷ κοινῷ συνεδρίῳ ἐπὶ [τοῦ κρ ]ατίστου δουκηναρίου, OGIS 222.27 (B.C. 266–1) ὅπως κατὰ τὸ δόγμα τ ]οῦ συνεδρίου βουλεύσωνται [περὶ τῆς τοῦ ἱερον οἰκοδομ ]ῆς κτλ.—a decree of the Ionian States regarding the celebration of the birthday of Antiochus I. Soter, and CIG II. 3417 (Imperial period) where the συνέδριον τῶν πρεσβυτέρων is previously named γερουσία : see Deissmann BS p. 156, and cf. Hicks CR i. p. 44, ";at Ephesus and elsewhere it is abundantly certain that οἱ πρεσβύτεροι and τὸ συνέδριον were convertible terms with γερουσία.";

As showing the variety of applications of the word see the long list of exx, in Syll.3 Index, and the data in Schürer Geschichte.3 ii. p. 193ff. (= HJP II. i. p. 169f. note 461). In the NT the word is applied to Jewish local courts of justice attached to the Synagogue (Matthew 10:17, Mark 13:9), and hence to the great Council at Jerusalem, the Sanhedrin (Matthew 5:22, al.). See also Burkitt Syriac Forms, p. 23.
