the Sadducees give question to jesus about the resurrection
came to jesus some Sadducees people, who argue there is no resurrection. they asked him: "Teacher, Moses wrote this commandment to us: if someone, who has a brother, died leaving a wife but left no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up descendants for his brother. is seven brothers. who first married a woman and died without leaving descendants. and the second is also married her and died without leaving descendants, as well as a third. and so on, seventh left no descendants. and finally, after all of them, the women die. on the day of resurrection, when they rise, whose wife will she be? from that seventh brother. Jesus said to them: "you are wrong, because you do not understand the scriptures and the power of god. because when people rise from the dead, people will neither marry, but life like angels in heaven. and also about the rise of the dead, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, and this is the word of god to him: I am the God of Abraham, Isaac and the God of Jacob? and not the god of the dead but the god of the living people, you're wrong.
