Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:10 - “And those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with [fn]dinner guests.

On that day some Sadducees (who say there is no resurrection) came to Jesus and asked Him a question,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:24 - saying, “Teacher, Moses said, ‘IF A MAN DIES HAVING NO CHILDREN, HIS BROTHER AS NEXT OF KIN SHALL MARRY HIS WIFE AND RAISE UP A SEED FOR HIS BROTHER.’
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:25 - “Now there were seven brothers with us; and the first married and died, and having no [fn]seed, he left his wife to his brother;
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:26 - so also the second, and the third, down to the seventh.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:27 - “And last of all, the woman died.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:28 - “In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife of the seven will she be? For they all had married her.”

But Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not [fn]understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:30 - “For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:31 - “But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:32 - ‘I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:33 - And when the crowds heard this, they were astonished at His teaching.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:36 - “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:37 - And He said to him, “‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE [fn]LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:38 - “This is the great and [fn]foremost commandment.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:39 - “And the second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:40 - “On these two commandments hang the whole Law and the Prophets.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:41 -

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 22:44 -

‘THE [fn]LORD SAID TO MY LORD,

“SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND,

UNTIL I PUT YOUR ENEMIES BENEATH YOUR FEET”’?
