Bible: Acts 23:6-10

23:6 Then when Paul noticed 1  that part of them were Sadducees 2  and the others Pharisees, 3  he shouted out in the council, 4 Brothers, I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees. I am on trial concerning the hope of the resurrection 5  of the dead! 23:7 When he said this, 6  an argument 7  began 8  between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the assembly was divided. 23:8 (For the Sadducees say there is no resurrection, or angel, or spirit, but the Pharisees acknowledge them all.) 9  23:9 There was a great commotion, 10  and some experts in the law 11  from the party of the Pharisees stood up 12  and protested strongly, 13 We find nothing wrong 14  with this man. What if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him? 23:10 When the argument became 15  so great the commanding officer 16  feared that they would tear Paul to pieces, 17  he ordered the detachment 18  to go down, take him away from them by force, 19  and bring him into the barracks. 20
