In verses 12-24, we read about a plot to kill Paul.

Playing the Crowd

In verses 6-10, Paul takes advantage of the disputes between the Pharisees and Sadducees to prevent having both sides attack him in a united assault.

It stirs things up so much that the Roman commander fears for Paul’s life and removes him from the Sanhedrin.

Sarcasm?

In verses 1-5, we read about Paul’s confrontation with the high priest and his followers.

I wonder if Paul is being sincere or sarcastic when he explains that he didn’t realize that Ananias was the high priest.
