Act 23:6 But Paul, when he perceived that one part of them were Sadducees and the other part Pharisees, cried out to the council (Sanhedrin), Brethren, I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees; it is with regard to the hope and the resurrection of the dead that I am indicted and being judged. Act 23:7 So when he had said this, an angry dispute arose between the Pharisees and the Sadducees; and the whole [crowded] assemblage was divided [into two factions].

When reading the above scripture we clearly see that the Sadducees did not believe in the Resurrection of Christ and they got very upset when Paul spoke about the resurrection of Jesus.  They did not believe in the after life.  After Jesus was crucified a story went around that someone had stolen the body of Christ to make it appear that He had come back to life but no-one was able to produce a dead body.  I can very well imagined how this frustrated the Sadducees, the Sanhedrin and the Pharisees.  Thank God that many people believed the Apostles and the number of people believing in Jesus by faith continued to grow.

Today take a minute to thank the Lord for the fact that He rose from the dead for you, so that you can live a good, prosperous, healthy, and wealthy life in the kingdom of God, for if He did not die on the cross He had no need to be resurrected; but since He did die for you; you are able to live an elevated life in Gods Kingdom with Him everyday.  What an amazing blessing from God, that by through His Son’s sacrifice on the cross, He opened the Way for you to have a good and blessed life.
