Grace to You

Luke chapter 20 is our text...Luke chapter 20. And I want to read to you verses 27 through 40...Luke chapter 20, verses 27 through 40. We're going to look at this text and find fascinating revelation of the majesty of the Lord Jesus Christ here. And the setting you wouldn't think would produce that result since it is an assault by enemies who want Him dead, but in the end, as always, He comes out gloriously triumphant.

Verse 27, "Now there came to Him some of the Sadducees who say that there is no resurrection. And they questioned Him saying, 'Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies having a wife and he is childless, his brother should take the wife and raise up offspring to his brother. Now there were seven brothers and the first took a wife and died childless and the second, and the third took her, and to the same way, all seven died leaving no children. Finally the woman died also. In the resurrection, therefore, which one's wife will she be? For all seven had her as wife.' And Jesus said to them, 'The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage. But those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage, for neither can they die anymore. For they're like angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed in the passage about the burning bush where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Now He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for all live to Him.' And some of the scribes answered and said, 'Teacher, You have spoken well.' For they did not have courage to question Him any longer about anything."...
