(Mt. 22:23-33; Mk. 12:18-27; Lk. 20:27-40)
This episode is about the resurrection of the dead. Since the Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection, they asked Jesus whose wife would be at the time of the resurrection the woman who married each of the seven brothers in turn? According to Jewish law, when one brother married and died without an heir, his younger brother was obliged to marry his deceased brother’s wife.
