But Jesus knew their evil plans. He said, "You pretenders! Why are you trying to trap me?
Show me the coin people use for paying the tax." They brought him a silver coin.
He asked them, "Whose picture is this? And whose words?"
"Caesar's," they replied. Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar. And give to God what belongs to God."
When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.
That same day the Sadducees came to Jesus with a question. They do not believe that people rise from the dead.
"Teacher," they said, "here is what Moses told us. If a man dies without having children, his brother must get married to the widow. He must have children to carry on his brother's name.
There were seven brothers among us. The first one got married and died. Since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother.
The same thing happened to the second and third brothers. It happened right on down to the seventh brother.
Finally, the woman died.
Now then, when the dead rise, whose wife will she be? All seven of them were married to her."
