And [while]a they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sadducees approached them,
greatly annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
And they laid hands on them and put [them]b in custody until the next day, because it was already evening.
But many of those who listened to the message believed, and the number of the men was approximately five thousand.
And it happened that on the next day, their rulers and elders and scribes came together in Jerusalem,
and Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas and John and Alexander, and all those who were from the high priest's family.
