Acts 23:8-10 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Paul knew that the Sadducees teach there is no resurrection and do not believe in angels or spirits, but the separated ones believe in them all. This sparked an even greater uproar among them.

Finally, some of the separated ones who were religious scholars[a] stood up and protested strongly, saying, “We find nothing wrong with this man. It could be that the Spirit[b] has spoken to him or an angel came to him.”

10 When the shouting match became intense, the commander, fearing they would tear Paul to pieces, intervened and ordered his soldiers to go in to their meeting and seize him and take him back to their headquarters.
