When Peter and the apostles were brought before the Sanhedrin, I was a Pharisee who was an honored teacher of the law and advised that the disciples should be let go.

Who am I?

Acts 5:34-39

   34: Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;
   35: And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men.
   36: For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.
   37: After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as obeyed him, were dispersed.
   38: And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:
   39: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

Answer: Gamaliel
