Acts 23:6

6 Now when Paul perceived that one part were 1Sadducees and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, "Brothers, 2I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees. It is 3with respect to the 4hope and the resurrection of the dead that I am on trial."

Acts 23:6 In-Context

4 Those who stood by said, "Would you revile God's high priest?
5 And Paul said, "I did not know, brothers, that he was the high priest, for it is written, 'You shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people.'"
6 Now when Paul perceived that one part were Sadducees and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, "Brothers, I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees. It is with respect to the hope and the resurrection of the dead that I am on trial."
7 And when he had said this, a dissension arose between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the assembly was divided.
8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, nor angel, nor spirit, but the Pharisees acknowledge them all.
