Sanhedrin is not the Torah concept!

Most religious people believe in the so-called "Sanhedrin" as the ultimate Torah authority. However, this is a delusional belief that was spawned by tradition and religion and it has NO basis in the Torah whatsoever.

The word "sanhedrin" (סַנְהֶדְרִין) is NEVER found in the Torah.

The only "Court" described in the Torah was the Tent of Meeting (The Tabernacle). And the only authority that decided all matters of the Torah was the Aaronites (aka Kohanites, the Priests).

Yes, this is true that Torah speaks of Judges and Elders, however, they were the lesser authority. The highest authority was the High Priests that served at the Tent of Meeting.

In fact, the reason why the Tabernacle called Tent of Meeting is that it was specifically designed for the entire congregation to meet.

Please also note that Judges functioned independently because Torah commands individual responsibility for judgments. Each Judge functioned independently and made decisions independently. Torah never commands a jury or a group of several judges judging cases.
