Mark 12:18Mark 12:27

3. By the Sadducees

18 1And some aSadducees came to Him, who say that there is bno resurrection, and they cquestioned Him, saying,

19 Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if anyone's brother dies and leaves a awife behind and leaves no child, his brother should take the wife and raise up seed to his brother.

20 There were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and when he died, he left no seed;

21 And the second took her and died, leaving behind no seed; and the third similarly;

22 And the seven left no seed. Last of all the woman also died.

23 In the resurrection, when they rise, whose wife will she be? For the seven had her as wife.

24 Jesus said to them, Is it not because of this that you err, that you do anot know the Scriptures nor the bpower of God?

25 For when they arise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in the heavens.

26 But concerning the dead, that they are raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the section concerning the abush, how God spoke to him, saying, "I am the bGod of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob''?

27 He is not the God of the dead, but of the aliving. You err greatly.
