23 On that day some Sadducees (who say there is no resurrection ) came to Jesus and questioned Him, 23 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question.
24 asking, "Teacher, Moses said, 'IF A MAN DIES HAVING NO CHILDREN, HIS BROTHER AS NEXT OF KIN SHALL MARRY HIS WIFE, AND RAISE UP CHILDREN FOR HIS BROTHER.' 24 "Teacher," they said, "Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him.
25 "Now there were seven brothers with us; and the first married and died, and having no children left his wife to his brother ; 25 Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother.
26 so also the second, and the third, down to the seventh. 26 The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh.
27 "Last of all, the woman died. 27 Finally, the woman died.
28 "In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had married her." 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?"
29 But Jesus answered and said to them, "You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God. 29 Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.
30 "For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. 30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
31 "But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God : 31 But about the resurrection of the dead--have you not read what God said to you,
32 'I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB '? He is not the God of the dead but of the living." 32 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob' ? He is not the God of the dead but of the living."
33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at His teaching. 33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.
34 But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together . 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together.
35 One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:
36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law ?" 36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"
37 And He said to him, " 'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.' 37 Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'
38 "This is the great and foremost commandment. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 "The second is like it, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
40 "On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets." 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question : 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
42 "What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?" They said to Him, "The son of David." 42 "What do you think about the Christ ? Whose son is he?" "The son of David," they replied.
43 He said to them, "Then how does David in the Spirit call Him 'Lord,' saying, 43 He said to them, "How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him 'Lord'? For he says,
44 'THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD, "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I PUT YOUR ENEMIES BENEATH YOUR FEET "'? 44 " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet." '
45 "If David then calls Him 'Lord,' how is He his son ?" 45 If then David calls him 'Lord,' how can he be his son?"
46 No one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day on to ask Him another question. 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.
