|| Mark 12:18-23; Luke 20:27-33
MT22:23 On that same day the Sadducees approached Jesus. Not believing in the resurrection, they asked Jesus, MT22:24 “Teacher, Moses said that if a man should die without children his brother should take in marriage his woman and raise up his brother’s seed. [Deuteronomy 25:5] MT22:25 Now we had seven brothers and the first one died without children and so his woman was released to his brother. MT22:26 This happened also with the second, the third, and finally all seven brothers. MT22:27 In the end the woman died. MT22:28 Therefore, in the resurrection to which of the seven will the woman belong? For all seven had her.”
 Sadducees: See the notes on Matthew 3:7.
 Resurrection: The Greek is ANASTASEI means again + stand. A synonym for it is raised up. Research the word resurrection. For a thorough considering see Where are the Dead?
 Moses said: The Sadducees only accepted the five books of Moses as inspired of God. They allude to Deuteronomy 25:5. Compare also Ruth 1:11; 3:13. This is called “brother-in-law marriage” and though it may seem quaint to a modern western world the need to preserve the family, tribe, and nation were obsessive to the Israelites. Jesus himself is the product of such a relationship (see the book of Ruth).
 Seed: The Greek is SPERMA.
 His woman: Or, “wife.” See notes elsewhere under wife.
