Chapter Summary

This chapter attempts at taking seriously the Yerushalmi as mishnaic interpretation, by considering one chapter of the Yerushalmi in its relation to the chapter of the Mishnah upon which it presents itself as commentary. Both the mishnaic exegesis and the Yerushalmi's commentary thereto are furthermore noteworthy in that they deal with an institution, and legal traditions attendant there-upon, that had long ceased to exist by the time both the Mishnah and the Yerushalmi were assembled in their extant forms. In the history of the interpretation of Israelite monarchy, Chapter Two of Mishnah Sanhedrin occupies a striking place for its bold juxtaposition of rules for the conduct of the king to those of the high pries.

Keywords: Mishnah; Yerushalmi Sanhedrin
