This is good Truth Network how is the resurrection of Jesus Christ changed my life. This we got experience truth where jumping in headfirst. Luke chapter 20 verses 27 to 40 Robert Gilmore a.k.a. the Christian car guys here.
I read the Scripture to us. Will you please your best radio voice and working a job in to the resurrection of Christ in another attack, another group of tractors going after Jesus in a holy week in Luke chapter 20 RI Luke 2027 through 40.
Then some of the Sadducees who deny that there is a resurrection came to him and ask him saying teacher, Moses wrote to us that if a man's brother dies having a wife and he dies without children, his brother should take his wife and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were seven brothers in the first took a wife, and died without children in the second took her wife and he died childless in the third took her in like manner, the seven also and they left no children, and died last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife does she become, for all seven had her as a wife. Jesus answered and said to them, the sons of this age. Mary and are given in marriage, but those who are counted worthy to retain that age and the resurrection from the dead. Neither Mary are given in marriage, nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the Angels and are sons of God being sons of the resurrection. But even Moses showed in the burning best Bush passage that the data raised when he called the Lord, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, for he is not the God of the dead. But the God of the living for all to live to him. Then some of the scribes answered and said teacher.
He was spoken well, but after that they dared not question them anymore will shut my mouth at day it lobbied jump right here.
It is first a couple questions to the delegates: why so many questions by the religious leaders at this stage in Jesus's ministry, yet he is to Jesus still on trial by them and really what ends up happening is they end up on trial right, you start asking these questions realize that while my soul is completely exposed. Here we we met the Herodian's last week last time in course their ass about whose images on you know why is the image of Caesar and who do we pay taxes to in this and that try to trip up there and he actually exposes them render to Caesar that which is Caesar's really got that was God's he blew them away.
Mike drop their gun, and now we have the Sadducees.
Now it's their turn to take their shot in the Sadducees. Now this is fasting. Many of you may know this, but they were the elite liberals of the religious leaders. They were your higher criticism guys.
They were the guys that basically only believed the first five books of the Old Testament, they didn't buy in any other books in the New Testament.
They didn't believe in the supernatural, denied the resurrection Angels demon spirits haven't held reckless many of you remember – 23. When Paul's on trial and you got all the Jews try to tear them apart before he can get the appeal to Rome, Paul makes a statement to turn the Sadducees against the Pharisees is a Pharisee. I believe the resurrection of the dead. All of a sudden it gets even more chaotic is that now those groups are trying to tear each other apart as Paul cleverly, you pay them against each other. They were minority in Israel, but they held the majority in power. Did you know the high priesthood which is known as the Sanhedrin was made up of Sadducees that would be like the Supreme Court of Israel to control the rule of the temples will they set the rules and civil their pocketbooks were hit hardest. When Jesus just in earlier and chapter 19 we turn the tables over after coming in on Palm Sunday into the holy city weeping over Jerusalem, coming in the city, finding his father's house a bunch of a brigand of thieves identities. Jesus turns the tables over, and he hit the Sadducees or anyone because they were making the money on the exchange rate ripping people off with it with a hyperinflated exchange rate will reduce from all over the world that were coming in for Passover, making money on charging way, way too much money for disrepute.
People just abaya a little lamb or goat or little turtledove for their sacrifice so the Sadducees were overall.
That and but ironically their United. They are in harmony. Maybe for the first time ever, with the Pharisees with the Herodian's with the other scribes and the religious leaders because of their common theme their common hatred for the Lord Jesus Christ.
So they create this absolutely absurd argument. Ab is called add absurd him in the Latin Robbie read this next question. This will get us into that if the Sadducees didn't believe in the resurrection. Why would they ask such a question, which you know you can't help but wonder if Jesus came back today and he can walk and that some of the different situations like this in the question would be in a word, you stand on predestination. Try to get a rise out of the Calvinist what it do you know that that same kind of thing that it be it's kind interesting to me. It kinda tells you the Jesus answer to that question that you been in a million fights and amendment million Bible studies in probably would be different than either side of the argument is exactly right. And this is really a fascinating thing.
The knee I want you to to jump to this question right here Robbie because this ties in with the spirit of what were saying out is there question demonstrate a perversion of the Scriptures. Just like cults and false beliefs by Joe's with his friends when they do they say will. How could Jesus be God.
If he's on the cross. Who is he talking to Chris. Chris of course are trying to attack through the the old ancient Aaron Evans Norris unerring document. It denies the Trinity there. Try to attack the deity of Christ and how the rookie this be you know so they going to these things, so they take a truth which Jesus did talk to his father from the cross with a take of a perverted and they twisted so they can say he's the son of God, but is not God the son, we know. In fact, he is God the son. He's got.
In essence, he's got he's got in power. He's coequal with the father's segment of the Trinity, and so on so forth and so that's what these guys are done they take take that same I think they're taking a truth, the resurrection was little believe in course and they're taking a instruments instance in is called it out of you want to see if you can assess question probably pronounce the question is this gets into the essence of our question. What was the lever married and very good Robbie so that so there is a really fascinating truth and in you know God's law account for all kinds of things including what happens to your wife when you die, the widow was highly regarded by God. There's all kinds of scriptures from the Psalms to the pinna to Deuteronomy that there's a Levitical law for how to care for widows only and how they could remember the story of the Lamb of Esther and Ruth and Mr. your Ruth and Naomi were that though the law the cleaning the how do we take, we want take care of the widows, the poor, the fatherless right so God has a heart for these dear souls and supervision was made in Deuteronomy chapter 25 you look at verse five. There is a scenario whereby there is a leave right marriage or it's also known as the kinsman redeemer which Boaz in fact became the kids Redeemer on anything but really it's before Deuteronomy because tomorrow right there you go that you have in their you know started giving his sons to her to to have children by their and so interestingly enough the whole Perez the week we wouldn't have to have that the same Jesus lineup if it weren't for this particular law Christ Kant Christ Jesus our kinsman redeemer to jump to the end of the story right. Because of this beautiful kids Redeemer law which basically was put in place fundamentally by God to extend the bloodline the land and the property of the deceased, who by the way, in a lot of cases was childless so didn't have a kid and Nevin air assigner denoted a daughter carry-on so the kinsman redeemer rule this lyric law would compel a brother and unmarried brother to take that his brother's wife, the brother-in-law to take his brothers wife or the nearest kin in the case of in a Boaz which we know David the nine the offspring of Jesse is a son of those guys so so the Scriptures place a value on preserving progeny birthrights and ancient landmarks for God's people. The tribes of Israel and this is how the widow was cared for.
Now the Sadducees by creating this absurd service. You know, this is the serous scenario they created so the brother takes it okay so the brother man's mother dies having wife he dies our children so his brother takes his wife Teresa's offspring, but there were seven brothers.
The first of the wife and I how children the second and wife so their creed is ridiculous scenario, much like the cults do when they attacked the faith to say, will they all die.
Who in the know it but you know so if you believe in the resurrection Jesus because you said earlier, John 11, just before this one you raise Lazarus that I am the resurrection life. If you believe in that, then how, then, whose wife is this this this woman you know who is her betrothal do is her beloved husband in the resurrection, which is what false teachers do they take a bedrock truth with a weapon eyes it to create a lie so what is Jesus to man alive.
This is really fasting read this question here Robbie hires Jesus in his answer, go back to Moses. What's significant about God being the God of the living while Jesus is answer really just again the way of the master Jesus you know yeah Jesus answered and said the sons of this age Marion are given a marriage so he says you're you're living in time and space, you're confining God me to this world to the dirt. The space the time, but those who are counted worthy to attain that age and the resurrection of the dead. He stand a higher plateau so that we should be excited by the way, with all the death and dying in our culture and our country we should be so excited by the resurrection that we don't talk about hardly any been a funeral in time of the resurrection was appointed funeral resurrection dear friend if you die right down somewhere right now I Mr. Smith commanded demand that is part of my last will and testament that you talk about the resurrection of Christ at my funeral.
You better do it or so wasn't giving us a nice accolades and pinna to did not type platitudes would not talk about the resurrection of Christ at some point of being buried in the ground or planet because your enemy, raise your bodies in the race course. Your soul is with the Lord okay off that offset rather chase there, but what frustrates me. But Jesus elevates them up. Those are counted worthy to change that age, the resurrection, a dead they neither marry nor are given in marriage first 36, nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the Angels and are sons of God that started to convolute or to the quality of angels is not angels are not redeemable like we are okay. So they are completely different from us in that sense, but we are like the Angels and that angels don't married or not given a marriage seminar elevated perfect state resurrection body.
There's not marriage. Marriage performed in heaven.
If there is the rub near go into it. There is not one lighting mistake right because in. That's the ad angels… Well maybe they do, but I don't know, but I knew I did one of the my most favorite things look forward to is is that wedding allowed to get up and went there you getting it right so but but but we know the Angels knowledge Americas. The Angels are not given a marriage per Jesus and you know everyone asked his they call the – the pastoralist stump the pastor was asked and raised it very well. Luke chapter 20 verse 36 Jesus says angels aren't getting married in heaven they never have ever will in were similar to them and that in our in our in a supernatural, immoral state, but verse 37 will get more into that next time. An experienced truth, share the word read were strata were admitted to the word get a friend like I got Robbie here. We gotta go. This is the Truth Network
