JUNE 10, 2017 MATTHEW 22:23-33 NO RESURRECTION?????????????????????????????????????
Matthew 22:23 "The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
22:24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
22:25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
22:26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
22:27 And last of all the woman died also.
22:28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
22:31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
22:32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
22:33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine."
Since the main point in these Scriptures is the validity of the Resurrection, I like what John Gill has to say about verse 32. It's rather long but has the quotes of quite a few theologians, which I feel is needed.
I thank God that the Sadducees were proven wrong by Jesus Himself. I dare say that there are some converts who just might question the resurrection.
