The reply of Jesus was, "You are in error, through ignorance of the Scriptures and of the power of God. For in the Resurrection, men neither marry nor are women given in marriage, but they are like angels in Heaven. But as to the Resurrection of the dead, have you never read what God says to you, read more.
I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of dead, but of living men."

"Is not this the cause of your error," replied Jesus--"your ignorance alike of the Scriptures and of the power of God? For when they have risen from among the dead, men do not marry and women are not given in marriage, but they are as angels are in Heaven. But as to the dead, that they rise to life, have you never read in the Book of Moses, in the passage about the Bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?' read more.
He is not the God of dead, but of living men. You are in grave error."

"The men of this age," replied Jesus, "marry, and the women are given in marriage. But as for those who shall have been deemed worthy to find a place in that other age and in the Resurrection from among the dead, the men do not marry and the women are not given in marriage. For indeed they cannot die again; they are like angels, and are sons of God through being sons of the Resurrection. read more.
But that the dead rise to life even Moses clearly implies in the passage about the Bush, where he calls the Lord 'The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' He is not a God of dead, but of living men, for to Him are all living."


Since then we are God's offspring, we ought not to imagine that His nature resembles gold or silver or marble, or anything sculptured by the art and inventive faculty of man.




But as to the Resurrection of the dead, have you never read what God says to you, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of dead, but of living men."

But as to the dead, that they rise to life, have you never read in the Book of Moses, in the passage about the Bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?' He is not the God of dead, but of living men. You are in grave error."

On the same day a party of Sadducees came to Him, contending that there is no resurrection. And they put this case to Him. "Teacher," they said, "Moses enjoined, 'If a man die childless, his brother shall marry his widow, and raise up a family for him.' Now we had among us seven brothers. The eldest of them married, but died childless, leaving his wife to his brother. read more.
So also did the second and the third, down to the seventh, till the woman also died, after surviving them all. At the Resurrection, therefore, whose wife of the seven will she be? for they all married her." The reply of Jesus was, "You are in error, through ignorance of the Scriptures and of the power of God. For in the Resurrection, men neither marry nor are women given in marriage, but they are like angels in Heaven. But as to the Resurrection of the dead, have you never read what God says to you, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of dead, but of living men." All the crowd heard this, and were filled with amazement at His teaching.

Then came to Him a party of Sadducees, a sect which denies that there is any Resurrection; and they proceeded to question Him. "Rabbi," they said, "Moses made it a law for us: 'If a man's brother should die and leave a wife, but no child, the man shall marry the widow and raise up a family for his brother.' There were once seven brothers, the eldest of whom married a wife, but at his death left no family. read more.
The second married her, and died, leaving no family; and the third did the same. And so did the rest of the seven, all dying childless. Finally the woman also died. At the Resurrection whose wife will she be? For they all seven married her." "Is not this the cause of your error," replied Jesus--"your ignorance alike of the Scriptures and of the power of God? For when they have risen from among the dead, men do not marry and women are not given in marriage, but they are as angels are in Heaven.

He is not the God of dead, but of living men. You are in grave error."

Next some of the Sadducees came forward (who deny that there is a Resurrection) "Rabbi, Moses made it a law for us that if a man's brother should die, leaving a wife but no children, the man shall marry the widow and raise up a family for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. The first of them took a wife and died childless. read more.
The second and the third also took her; and all seven, having done the same, left no children when they died. Finally the woman also died. The woman, then--at the Resurrection--whose wife shall she be? for they all seven married her." "The men of this age," replied Jesus, "marry, and the women are given in marriage. But as for those who shall have been deemed worthy to find a place in that other age and in the Resurrection from among the dead, the men do not marry and the women are not given in marriage. For indeed they cannot die again; they are like angels, and are sons of God through being sons of the Resurrection. But that the dead rise to life even Moses clearly implies in the passage about the Bush, where he calls the Lord 'The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' He is not a God of dead, but of living men, for to Him are all living." Then some of the Scribes replied, "Rabbi, you have spoken well." From that time, however, no one ventured to challenge Him with a single question.

If however you have risen with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, enthroned at God's right hand. Give your minds to the things that are above, not to the things that are on the earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

All the crowd heard this, and were filled with amazement at His teaching. Now the Pharisees came up when they heard that He had silenced the Sadducees,

These words of his caused an angry dispute between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the assembly took different sides. For the Sadducees maintain that there is no resurrection, and neither angel nor spirit; but the Pharisees acknowledge the existence of both.
