Robertson Word Pictures - Acts 23:8 - 23:8

(Show All Books | Show All Chapters)

This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

There is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit (mē einai anastasin mēte aggelon mēte pneuma). Infinitive with negative mē in indirect assertion. These points constitute the chief doctrinal differences between the Pharisees and the Sadducees.

Both (amphotera). Here used though three items of belief are mentioned as in Act 19:16 where the seven sons of Sceva are thus described. This idiom is common enough in papyri and Byzantine Greek (Robertson, Grammar, p. 745).
