A Question About Marriage And The Resurrection

Matthew 22:23-33

23 On that day the Sadducees came to Him, who say that there is no resurrection. And they asked Him, 24 saying, Master, Moses said, If a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up seed to his brother. 25 Now there were with us seven brothers. And the first, when he had married a wife, died. And, having no issue, he left his wife to his brother. 26 The second also did likewise, and the third, to the seventh. 27 And last of all the woman also died. 28 Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife shall she be, of the seven? For they all had her.

29 Jesus answered and said to them, You err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in Heaven. 31 But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken to you by God, saying, 32 "I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?" God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

33 And when the crowd heard this, they were astonished at His doctrine.

Mark 12:18-27

18 Then the Sadducees came to Him, who say there is no resurrection. And they asked Him, saying, 19 Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If a man's brother die and leaves his wife, and leaves no children, his brother should take his wife and raise up seed to his brother. 20 And there were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and dying left no seed. 21 And the second took her, and died; neither did he leave any seed. And the third likewise. 22 And the seven had her, and left no seed. Last of all the woman also died. 23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife will she be? For the seven had her as a wife.

24 And answering Jesus said to them, Do you not err because of this, not knowing Scriptures, nor the power of God? 25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but they are as the angels in Heaven. 26 And as regards the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses how God spoke to him in the Bush, saying, "I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob?" 27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. Therefore you greatly err.

Luke 20:27-40

27 And certain of the Sadducees came, those speaking against a resurrection, that it was not to be. And they asked Him, 28 saying, Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If anyone's brother dies, having a wife, and if he dies without children, his brother should take his wife and raise up seed to his brother. 29 Therefore there were seven brothers. And the first took a wife and died without children. 30 And the second took her as a wife, and he died childless. 31 And the third took her. And likewise the seven left no children and died. 32 Last of all the woman also died. 33 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be? For the seven had her as a wife.

34 And answering, Jesus said to them, The sons of this world marry and are given in marriage, 35 but they who shall be counted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage. 36 Nor can they die any more, for they are equal to the angels, and are the sons of God, being the sons of the resurrection. 37 But that the dead are raised, even Moses pointed out at the Bush, when he called the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. 38 For He is not God of the dead, but of the living. For all live to Him.

39 And answering, certain of the scribes said, Teacher, you have spoken well. 40 And after that they did not dare ask Him anything.
