And as they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple and the Sad'ducees came upon them,
annoyed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead.
And they arrested them and put them in custody until the morrow, for it was already evening.
But many of those who heard the word believed; and the number of the men came to about five thousand.
On the morrow their rulers and elders and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem,
with Annas the high priest and Ca'iaphas and John and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family.
