Mark 12:25 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 12:25

For when they shall rise from the dead
These seven brethren, and the woman; and so any, and every other:

they neither marry, nor are given marriage:
there will be no such natural relation subsisting, nor any need of any:

but are as the angels which are in heaven; (See Gill on Matthew 22:30).

Mark 12:25 In-Context

23 At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
24 Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God?
25 When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
26 Now about the dead rising—have you not read in the Book of Moses, in the account of the burning bush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’?
27 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!”
