Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Jesus and asked,
"Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, leaving a widow but no children, the brother must marry the widow and raise up children for his brother.a20
Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman; when he died, he left no children.
The second married her and died without leaving any children. The third did the same.
None of the seven left any children. Finally, the woman died.
At the resurrection, when they all rise up, whose wife will she be? All seven were married to her."
Jesus said to them, "Isn't this the reason you are wrong, because you don't know either the scriptures or God's power?25 When people rise from the dead, they won't marry nor will they be given in marriage. Instead, they will be like God's angels.26 As for the resurrection from the dead, haven't you read in the scroll from Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God said to Moses, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?b27 He isn't the God of the dead but of the living. You are seriously mistaken."
