Luke 20:27-47 American Standard Version

The Question about the Resurrection

27  And there came to him certain of the Sadducees, they that say that there is no resurrection; 28  and they asked him, saying, Teacher, Moses wrote unto us, that if a man's brother die, having a wife, and he be childless, his brother should take the wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. 29  There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died childless; 30  and the second: 31  and the third took her; and likewise the seven also left no children, and died. 32  Afterward the woman also died. 33  In the resurrection therefore whose wife of them shall she be? for the seven had her to wife. 34  And Jesus said unto them, The sons of this world marry, and are given in marriage: 35  but they that are accounted worthy to attain to that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36  for neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. 37  But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in [the place concerning] the Bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. 38  Now he is not the God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

39  And certain of the scribes answering said, Teacher, thou hast well said. 40  For they durst not any more ask him any question.

The Question about David's Son

41  And he said unto them, How say they that the Christ is David's son? 42  For David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 43  Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet. 44  David therefore calleth him Lord, and how is he his son?

Jesus Denounces the Scribes

45  And in the hearing of all the people he said unto his disciples, 46  Beware of the scribes, who desire to walk in long robes, and love salutations in the marketplaces, and chief seats in the synagogues, and chief places at feasts; 47  who devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater condemnation.
