“The Jerusalem religious leaders
Were much annoyed
He was proclaiming
That in Jesus
The resurrection of the dead.”
διαπονούμενοι διὰ τὸ διδάσκειν αὐτοὺς τὸν λαὸν καὶ καταγγέλλειν ἐν τῷ Ἰησοῦ τὴν ἀνάστασιν τὴν ἐκ νεκρῶν,
The author of Acts indicated that these Jewish officials were annoyed (διαπονούμενοι) because Peter and John were teaching the people (διὰ τὸ διδάσκειν αὐτοὺς τὸν λαὸν). Acts is the only Greek biblical writing that used this word διαπονούμενοι, that means to toil through, to be worn out, annoyed, or greatly troubled. Peter was proclaiming (καὶ καταγγέλλειν) the resurrection of the dead (τὴν ἀνάστασιν τὴν ἐκ νεκρῶν) in Jesus (ἐν τῷ Ἰησοῦ). These Jewish Jerusalem officials were annoyed that Peter was teaching the people about the resurrection of Jesus. The aristocratic Sadducees were mostly opposed to this teaching about the resurrection of the dead in general. What do you believe about the resurrection of the dead?
