Some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers debated with him. Some of them said, "What is this rag-picker trying to make out?" Others said, "He seems to be preaching some foreign deities." This was because he was telling the good news of Jesus and the resurrection.

Now if what we preach about Christ is that he was raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no such thing as a resurrection of the dead?

When they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some of them sneered, but others said, "We should like to hear you again on this subject."

On the same day some Sadducees came up to him, claiming that there is no resurrection, and they asked him this question:

For the Sadducees hold that there is no resurrection and that there are no angels or spirits, while the Pharisees believe in all three.


On the same day some Sadducees came up to him, claiming that there is no resurrection, and they asked him this question: "Master, Moses said, 'If a man dies without children his brother shall marry his widow, and raise up a family for him.' Now there were seven brothers among us. The first of them married and died, and as he had no children, he left his wife to his brother; read more.
so did the second, and the third, and the rest of the seven. After them all the woman died. At the resurrection which one's wife will she be? For they all married her." Jesus answered them, "You are wrong, because you do not understand the Scriptures nor the power of God. For after the resurrection there is no marrying or being married, but they live as angels do in heaven. But as to the resurrection of the dead, did you never read what was said to you by God, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of dead men but of living!" When the crowd heard this, they were astounded at his teaching.

Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him and asked him a question. "Master," they said, "Moses made us a law that if a man's brother died, leaving a wife but no child, the man should marry the widow and raise up a family for his brother. There were once seven brothers. And the eldest married a wife and died, leaving no child. read more.
And the second married her, and died without leaving any child, and so did the third. And none of the seven left any child. Finally, the woman died too. At the resurrection, which one's wife will she be? For all seven of them married her." Jesus said to them, "Does not this show that you are wrong, and do not understand either the Scriptures or the power of God? For when people rise from the dead, there is no marrying or being married, but they live as angels do in heaven. But as to the dead being raised, 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 God of dead men but of living! You are entirely wrong."

Then some of the Sadducees, who say that there is no resurrection, came up and asked him, "Master, Moses made us a law that if a man's brother die leaving a wife but no children, the man should marry the widow and raise up a family for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. And the eldest married a wife and died childless. read more.
And the second married her, and the third, and all the seven married her and died without leaving any child. After ward the woman died too. Now at the resurrection, which one's wife will the woman be? For all seven of them married her." Jesus said to them, "The people of this world marry and are married, but those who are thought worthy to attain that other world and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are married. For they cannot die again; they are like the angels, and through sharing in the resurrection, they are sons of God. But that the dead are raised to life, even Moses indicated in the passage about the bush, when he calls the Lord 'the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' He is not the God of dead men but of living, for all men are alive to him." Some of the scribes replied, "Master, that was a fine answer!" For they did not dare to ask him any more questions.

If, then, you have been raised to life with Christ, set your hearts on the things that are where Christ is, above, seated at God's right hand. Fix your thoughts on the things that are above, not on those that are on earth. For you have died, and your life now lies hidden with Christ in God.

As they were talking in this way to the people, the high priests, the commander of the Temple, and the Sadducees came up to them,

And when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together,
