Sadducees Ask About the Resurrection
r Then some of the Sadducees, s who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Him and asked Him,
saying: "Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if a man's brother dies, having a wife, and he dies without children, his brother should take his wife and raise up offspring for his brother.
"Now there were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and died without children.
"And the second took her as wife, and he died childless.
"Then the third took her, and in like manner the seven also; and they left no children, and died.
"Last of all the woman died also.
"Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife does she become? For all seven had her as wife."
Jesus answered and said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage.
"But those who are t counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage;
"nor can they die anymore, for u they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, v being sons of the resurrection.
"But even Moses showed in the burning bush passage that the dead are raised, when he called the Lord w 'the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.'
"For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for x all live to Him."
Then some of the scribes answered and said, "Teacher, You have spoken well."
But after that they dared not question Him anymore.

If, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

Acts 7:30 - 32
And when forty years had passed, an Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire in a bush, in the wilderness of Mount Sinai.
For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.
Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's.
For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living.
But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
