Acts 26:23

26:23 Christ must suffer . . . rise from the dead. The Jews had difficulty accepting the idea that the Messiah would suffer and die. Jesus and His apostles taught this doctrine from the Scriptures (17:2, 3; Luke 24:27; 1 Cor. 15:3, 4), yet the Jews rejected it, arrested Paul, and wanted to kill him.
