Bible: Matthew 22:23-33

Marriage and the Resurrection

22:23 The same day Sadducees 1  (who say there is no resurrection) 2  came to him and asked him, 3  22:24 Teacher, Moses said, ‘If a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and father children 4  for his brother.’ 5  22:25 Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children he left his wife to his brother. 22:26 The second did the same, and the third, down to the seventh. 22:27 Last 6  of all, the woman died. 22:28 In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had married her.” 7  22:29 Jesus 8  answered them, “You are deceived, 9  because you don’t know the scriptures or the power of God. 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels 10  in heaven. 22:31 Now as for the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, 11  22:32 I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? 12  He is not the God of the dead but of the living! 13  22:33 When the crowds heard this, they were amazed at his teaching.
