Gamaliel is a Hebrew name, often met with, but more particularly bestowed upon three noted Rabbis, of whom the first is that Gamaliel at whose feet St. Paul sat. He was noted for his tolerance towards the Christians and other Gentiles.

He was thought to have become Christian, but this is improbable. Gamaliel of Jabneh was the grandson of the above-mentioned, and after the fall of

Jerusalem was the head of the nation. Both of these were among the seven great Rabbis of the Talmud.
