Now as they were speaking to the people, the priests, the commander of the temple guard, and the Sadducees confronted them,
because they were provoked that they were teaching the people and proclaiming in the person of Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
So they seized them and put them in custody until the next day, since it was already evening.
But many of those who heard the message believed, and the number of the men came to about 5,000.
The next day, their rulers, elders, and scribes assembled in Jerusalem
with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John and Alexander, and all the members of the high-priestly family.
