Who is Sceva?
        (fitted), an Ephesian Jewish priest whose seven sons practised exorcism. Acts 19:14. SCHISM means a rupture or separation, 1 Cor 12:25, but it is supposed to denote in this passage any such alienation of feeling among Christians as violates the spiritual union which ought to exist among them, though there be no doctrinal error or separate communions.
