While Peter and John were speaking to the people, the priests, the captain of the temple guard, and the Sadducees confronted them.
They were incensed that the apostles were teaching the people and announcing that the resurrection of the dead was happening because of Jesus.
They seized Peter and John and put them in prison until the next day. (It was already evening.)
Many who heard the word became believers, and their number grew to about five thousand.
The next day the leaders, elders, and legal experts gathered in Jerusalem,
along with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John, Alexander, and others from the high priest's family.
