23 The same day came to him the Sadducees,





which say that there is no resurrection, and Acts 23.8. 24 asked him, saying, Master, Moses said, If a Deut. 25. man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his bro25 ther. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto 26 his brother: likewise the second also, and the 27 third, unto the seventh. And last of all the 28 woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection

whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they 29 all had her. Jesus answered and said unto them,

"Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the L. 20. " power of God. The children of this world 34, 35" marry, and are given in marriage: but they “which shall be accounted worthy to obtain

"not the God of the dead, but the God of the M". 22. “living: ye therefore do greatly err." And when 33 the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
