Well, let’s open the Word of God again to Mark chapter 12. The only thing better than doing this twice a day would be doing it three, four, five times a day, or maybe all day. We’re back in the twelfth chapter of Mark and the text that we were looking at this morning occurred on Wednesday of Passion Week and we’re still on Wednesday of Passion Week when we come to verse 18. Verse 18, I’m going to read the section down to verse 27.

“Some Sadducees who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus and began questioning Him, saying, ‘Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves behind a wife and leaves no child, his brother should marry the wife and raise up children to his brother. There were seven brothers and the first took a wife and died leaving no children. The second one married her and died, leaving behind no children. The third, likewise. So all seven left no children. Last of all, the woman died also,”...which appears to be a mercy...verse 23, he’s (should be “She’s”) going through men pretty fast.

Verse 23, “In the resurrection when they rise again, which one’s wife will she be, for all seven had married her?” Jesus said to them, ‘Is this not the reason you are mistaken, that you do not understand the scriptures or the powers of God? For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage but are like the angels in heaven. But regarding the fact that the dead rise again, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God spoke to him saying, “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 the living. You are greatly mistaken.’”...
