18 Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Jesus and asked, 19 “Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies, leaving a widow but no children, the brother must marry the widow and raise up children for his brother. 20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman; when he died, he left no children. 21 The second married her and died without leaving any children. The third did the same. 22 None of the seven left any children. Finally, the woman died. 23 At the resurrection, when they all rise up, whose wife will she be? All seven were married to her.” 24 Jesus said to them, “Isn’t this the reason you are wrong, because you don’t know either the scriptures or God’s power? 25 When people rise from the dead, they won’t marry nor will they be given in marriage. Instead, they will be like God’s angels. 26 As for the resurrection from the dead, haven’t you read in the scroll from Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God said to Moses, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? 27 He isn’t the God of the dead but of the living. You are seriously mistaken.” (Mark 12:18-27, CEB)
You are seriously mistaken.
No one is married in the fulfillment of the kingdom. But that would cause an issue when you see the woman as property and belonging to each of the seven men. They don’t even react when Jesus says we will all be like God’s angels, meaning all of us men, women, children, we will all be the same. I’m surprised they didn’t throw a fit about that.
You see we are all the same in the eyes of God and none of us are better than the next person. God is our God and we will live forever. So let us now love as God does, equally all people.
Love People. Love God.
