Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.
For now, we have this life. We see the things of this life. Jesus came from heaven so He could tell us of heavenly things. It’s good to know of the hope of the things of those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age. This portion of Scripture tells us of the resurrection from the dead. As we go on in Jesus answer to the Sadducees, who were leaders of Israel at that time, we find that Moses also (v. 37) showed that the dead rise, for Moses calls the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. v38 – “He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to Him all are alive.” Easter holds great promises to us who are counted worthy. Christ arose with body and soul. The part where Jesus said, “for to Him all are alive.” Gives the Christians the assurance of life eternal. Rest in peace the Lord lives and is still on the throne to give to His own eternal life. Pastor LeRoy
