A Question About Marriage And The Resurrection

23 On that day Sadducees--who say there is no resurrection--came up to him and asked him, 24 saying, "Teacher, Moses said if someone dies without having children, his brother is to marry his wife and {father} descendants for his brother. 25 Now there were seven brothers with us. And the first died [after] getting married, and [because he] did not have descendants, he left his wife to his brother.
