Luke 22:27-38

27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with

a question. 28 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother

dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and

have children for his brother. 29 Now there were seven brothers. The first one

married a woman and died childless. 30 The second 31 and then the third

married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children. 32 Finally,

the woman died too. 33 Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be,

since the seven were married to her?”

34 Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. 35

But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the

resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, 36 and

they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children,

since they are children of the resurrection. 37 But in the account of the bush,

even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of

Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ 38 He is not the God

of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”
