And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to smite him on the mouth.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

23:2 Ananias. This Ananias, of course, was not the same high priest as at the time of Christ, thirty years before. This priest was a political appointee, notoriously corrupt and cruel, destined soon for assassination by his Jewish countrymen when they rebelled against Rome only a few years hence.
