Now there were seven brothers among us. The first
married and died and, having no descendants, left his
wife to his brother. The same happened with the second
and the third, through all seven. Finally the woman
died. Now at the resurrection, of the seven, whose
wife will she be? For they all had been married to her."
Jesus said to them in reply, "You are misled because
you do not know the scriptures or the power of God.
At the resurrection they neither marry nor are given
but are like the angels in heaven. And
concerning the resurrection of the dead
, have you not
read what was said to you by God, 'I am the God of
Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'?
He is not
of the dead but
of the living
