Acts 4:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 4

While they were still speaking to the people, the priests, the captain of the temple guard, and the Sadducees[a] confronted them, disturbed that they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead.

Footnotes:

  1. 4:1 The priests, the captain of the temple guard, and the Sadducees: the priests performed the temple liturgy; the temple guard was composed of Levites, whose captain ranked next after the high priest. The Sadducees, a party within Judaism at this time, rejected those doctrines, including bodily resurrection, which they believed alien to the ancient Mosaic religion. The Sadducees were drawn from priestly families and from the lay aristocracy.
