Top  Previous  Next

Sep 23 10.14 The same day, Sadducees who deny the resurrection came asking, “Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies childless, his brother should marry the widow and raise children for him. Now there were seven brothers. The first married and died childless, leaving his wife for his brother. So did the second and the third, down to the seventh. Finally, the woman died. At the resurrection, whose wife will she be since all seven had her?”

Sep 24 Jesus answered, “You err because you neither understand scripture nor Gods power. Unlike sons of this age, those worthy of the new age and the resurrection, are Gods children; they dont die and wont marry, but will be like Gods heavenly angels. About the resurrection,    havent you read what God said to Moses in the burning bush, I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? God isnt God of the dead, but of the living.” Certain scribes said, “Master, you have answered well,” and stopped questioning him. The crowds were amazed at his teaching. Hearing he had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees met together.
