A Question Concerning the Resurrection
Interwoven Gospels

On the same day there came to Jesus some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection; and they asked Him, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote to us, 'If any man's brother die and leave a wife behind, and leave no child, that his brother shall take his wife and raise up seed to his brother." Now there were with us seven brothers; and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed; and the second took her, and died, leaving no seed; and the third likewise took her, and in like manner the seven took her and died and left no children. Then last of all the woman died. In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her to wife."

Then Jesus answering, said to them, "Ye err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage; but those who are accounted worthy to attain to that age, and the resurrection from the dead, when they shall rise from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; for neither can they die any more: for they are similar to angels in heaven, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

"But concerning the dead that they are raised; have ye not read that which was spoken to you by God in the book of Moses, how, at the bush, God spake to him, saying, 'I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? Now He is not a God of dead men, but of the living; for all live to Him. Ye do greatly err."

Then some of the scribes answering said, "Teacher, Thou hast spoken well." And the multitudes, having heard it, were astonished at His teaching.
