Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. “Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children. The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third. In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last of all, the woman died too. At the resurrection c whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?” Mark 12:18-23 NIV
Ah yes. Another attempt to trap Jesus in what He might respond to a question. This time the question came from the Sadducees. All these attempts to trap Jesus were focused upon questions of earthly matters. This makes sense to the extent that this is where people have had experience. What can we know about heaven, and that which awaits us after resurrection? All that we can know is that which God intends for us to know. It is sad that these men would not allow their minds to just listen to the Master and not conjure up their own visions of what lies beyond this world. Remember that God’s thoughts are not man’s, nor are God’s ways the ways of men. If you want an idea of what lies beyond death be quiet and listen to Christ. This is the only way to become aware of that which lies beyond. For those who believe in Christ, and follow Him, after life shall be beyond that which we possibly can comprehend. Trust and believe in Him. He is your Savior and Redeemer.
