(27-40) Sadducees Ask About the Resurrection
Jesus shows the Sadducees that the resurrection was foreseen by some in the Old Testament when he reminds them that Moses referred to the Lord as the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were physically dead during Moses’ time, but spiritually alive. This is why God is not the God of the dead, but of the leaving. No one is utterly destroyed; everyone lives to Him.
(41-44) Whose Son Is the Christ?
