Matt 22:23-33

23 The same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Him and asked Him,

24 saying: "Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up offspring for his brother.

25 "Now there were with us seven brothers. The first died after he had married, and having no offspring, left his wife to his brother.

26 "Likewise the second also, and the third, even to the seventh.

  1. "Last of all the woman died also.

  2. "Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had her."

  3. Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God.

  4. "For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.

  5. "But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying,

  6. 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."

  7. And when the multitudes heard this, they were astonished at His teaching.

Mark 12:18-27

18 Then some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Him; and they asked Him, saying:

19 "Teacher, Moses wrote to us that if a man's brother dies, and leaves his wife behind, and leaves no children, his brother should take his wife and raise up offspring for his brother.

20 "Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife; and dying, he left no offspring.

21 "And the second took her, and he died; nor did he leave any offspring. And the third likewise.

22 "So the seven had her and left no offspring. Last of all the woman died also.

23 "Therefore, in the resurrection, when they rise, whose wife will she be? For all seven had her as wife."

24 Jesus answered and said to them, "Are you not therefore mistaken, because you do not know the Scriptures nor the power of God?

25 "For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

26 "But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'?

27 "He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly mistaken."

Luke 20:27-40

27 Then some of the Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Him and asked Him,

28 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.

29 "Now there were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and died without children.

30 "And the second took her as wife, and he died childless.

31 "Then the third took her, and in like manner the seven also; and they left no children, and died.

32 "Last of all the woman died also.

33 "Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife does she become? For all seven had her as wife."

  1. And Jesus answered and said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage.

  2. "But those who are counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage;

  3. "nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

  4. "Now even Moses showed in the burning bush passage that the dead are raised, when he called the Lord 'the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.'

  5. "For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him."

  6. Then some of the scribes answered and said, "Teacher, You have spoken well."

  7. But after that they dared not question Him anymore.
