The Resurrection

73 ( 44 | 29 )

The Sadducees come to Jesus and ask Him about the resurrection, even though they don't believe in the Resurrection. They think they will be able to trap Him, but Jesus tells them they were wrong because they did not know the Scriptures. He took them back to school and told them what they should have known. In the historical narrative of Moses and the burning bush, the Lord had told Moses that He was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In other words, He is the God of the living and not the dead.

The Saducees' minds were restricted to the here and now. They assumed that if there was a resurrection, it would look just like on earth – complete with marriage and everything. They didn't believe in anything they couldn't see. They couldn't imagine anything after death. But that limits the scope of the power of God Who made the heavens and the earth.

In heaven, our relationships – including our marriage relationship – will be different than they were here on earth. They will be perfect and much better than even our best days here below. In heaven, there will be far better things for us to worry about.

We must make up our mind. Do we belive in Jesus as the only way, truth, and life? Do we believe that even in the resurrection, He has great plans for us? The resurrection is real because our Savior said it is. Will we believe in it, or reject it?
