Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came up and questioned Him: 27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question.
28 "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother has a wife, and dies childless, his brother should take the wife and produce offspring for his brother. 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 took a wife and died without children. 29 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childless.
30 Also the second 30 The second
31 and the third took her. In the same way, all seven died and left no children. 31 and then the third married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children.
32 Finally, the woman died too. 32 Finally, the woman died too.
33 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife will the woman be? For all seven had married her." 33 Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?"
34 Jesus told them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage. 34 Jesus replied, "The people of this age marry and are given in marriage.
35 But those who are counted worthy to take part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor 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 For they cannot die anymore, because they are like angels and are sons of God, since they are sons of the resurrection. 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 Moses even indicated [in the passage] about the burning bush that the dead are raised, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. 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 God of the dead but of the living, because all are living to Him." 38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive."
39 Some of the scribes answered, "Teacher, You have spoken well." 39 Some of the teachers of the law responded, "Well said, teacher!"
40 And they no longer dared to ask Him anything. 40 And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
