Unbelief and Division
A Sermon on Acts 23:6-8
Now when Paul perceived that one part were Sadducees and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, “Brothers, I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees. It is with respect to the hope and the resurrection of the dead that I am on trial.” And when he had said this, a dissension arose between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the assembly was divided. For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, nor angel, nor spirit, but the Pharisees acknowledge them all. (ESV)
A picture of the world today; non-Christians identical with members of the Council; the nature of division; reasons for unbelief examined; unbelief and prejudice; Christianity is based on facts; a ransom for many.
