Acts 23:6-8

Context

23:6 Then when Paul noticed 1  that part of them were Sadducees 2  and the others Pharisees, 3  he shouted out in the council, 4  “Brothers, I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees. I am on trial concerning the hope of the resurrection 5  of the dead!” 23:7 When he said this, 6  an argument 7  began 8  between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the assembly was divided. 23:8 (For the Sadducees say there is no resurrection, or angel, or spirit, but the Pharisees acknowledge them all.) 9 

1 tn BDAG 200 s.v. γινώσκω 4 has “to be aware of someth., perceive, notice, realize”; this is further clarified by section 4.c: “w. ὅτι foll….Ac 23:6.”

2 sn See the note on Sadducees in 4:1.

3 sn See the note on Pharisee in 5:34.

4 tn Grk “the Sanhedrin” (the Sanhedrin was the highest legal, legislative, and judicial body among the Jews).

5 tn That is, concerning the hope that the dead will be resurrected. Grk “concerning the hope and resurrection.” BDAG 320 s.v. ἐλπίς 1.b.α states, “Of Israel’s messianic hope Ac 23:6 (. καὶ ἀνάστασις for . τῆς ἀν. [obj. gen] as 2 Macc 3:29 . καὶ σωτηρία).” With an objective genitive construction, the resurrection of the dead would be the “object” of the hope.

6 tn The participle εἰπόντος (eiponto") has been translated temporally.

7 tn Or “a dispute” (BDAG 940 s.v. στάσις 3).

8 tn Grk “there came about an argument.” This has been simplified to “an argument began”

9 tn BDAG 55 s.v. ἀμφότεροι 2 has “all, even when more than two are involved…Φαρισαῖοι ὁμολογοῦσιν τὰ ἀ. believe in them all 23:8.” On this belief see Josephus, J. W. 2.8.14 (2.163); Ant. 18.1.3 (18.14).

sn This is a parenthetical note by the author.
