Some Sadducees, those who say there is no resurrection,
came to him and asked him a question, "Teacher, Moses wrote
for us that if a man's brother dies, leaving a wife but no children,
the man shall marry the widow and raise up children for his brother.
Now there were seven brothers; the first married, and died childless;
then the second and the third married her, and so in the same
way all seven died childless. Finally the woman also died. In
the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For
the seven had married her."
Jesus said to them, "Those who belong to this
age marry and are given in marriage; but those who are considered
worthy of a place in that age and in the resurrection from the
dead neither marry nor are given in marriage. Indeed they cannot
die anymore, because they are like angels and are children of
God, being children of the resurrection. And the fact that the
dead are raised Moses himself showed, in the story about the bush,
where he speaks of the Lord as the God of Abraham, the God of
Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Now he is God not of the dead, but
of the living; for to him all of them are alive."
Seven Is Enough!
