Paul’s Arrest and Trial

“Upon his return to Jerusalem, Paul now finds himself being arrested and attacked by local Jews who have been stirred up by certain men from Asia.  Fortunately, however, Paul will be rescued by Roman soldiers acting under the local Roman commander but is later taken into protective custody.

On the following day, the record reveals that Paul is put on trial before the Sanhedrin Council, in much the same way that Jesus himself had been tried years earlier.  Paul sets the Pharisees in controversy against the Sadducees when he refers to his belief in a resurrection after death.  In the debate which ensues, no charges are brought and Paul is returned to custody.”
