Peter and John were speaking to the people. The priests, the captain of the temple guard, and the Sadducees came up to the apostles.
They were very upset by what the apostles were teaching the people. The apostles were saying that because Jesus rose from the dead, people can be raised from the dead.
So the temple authorities arrested Peter and John. It was already evening, so they put them in prison until the next day.
But many who heard the message believed. The number of men who believed grew to about 5,000.
The next day the rulers, the elders and the teachers of the law met in Jerusalem.
Annas, the high priest, was there. So were Caiaphas, John, Alexander and others in the high priest's family.
