But Jesus saw through their trick and answered, "Why are you trying to trap me? Bring a silver coin, and let me see it."
They brought him one, and he asked, "Whose face and name are these?" "The Emperor's," they answered.
So Jesus said, "Well, then, pay to the Emperor what belongs to the Emperor, and pay to God what belongs to God." And they were amazed at Jesus.
Then some Sadducees, who say that people will not rise from death, came to Jesus and said, 1
"Teacher, Moses wrote this law for us: "If a man dies and leaves a wife but no children, that man's brother must marry the widow so that they can have children who will be considered the dead man's children.' 2
Once there were seven brothers; the oldest got married and died without having children.
Then the second one married the woman, and he also died without having children. The same thing happened to the third brother,
and then to the rest: all seven brothers married the woman and died without having children. Last of all, the woman died.
Now, when all the dead rise to life on the day of resurrection, whose wife will she be? All seven of them had married her."
Jesus answered them, "How wrong you are! And do you know why? It is because you don't know the Scriptures or God's power.
For when the dead rise to life, they will be like the angels in heaven and will not marry.
