Luke 20:27-47 New King James Version

The Question about the Resurrection

27  Then some of the Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Him and asked Him, 28  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. 29  Now there were seven brothers. And the first took a wife, and died without children. 30  And the second took her as wife, and he died childless. 31  Then the third took her, and in like manner the seven also; and they left no children, and died. 32  Last of all the woman died also. 33  Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife does she become? For all seven had her as wife." 34  And Jesus answered and said to them, "The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage. 35  But those who are counted worthy to attain that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 36  nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. 37  But even Moses showed in the burning bush passage that the dead are raised, when he called the Lord 'the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.' 38  For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him."

39  Then some of the scribes answered and said, "Teacher, You have spoken well." 40  But after that they dared not question Him anymore.

The Question about David's Son

41  And He said to them, "How can they say that the Christ is the Son of David? 42  Now David himself said in the Book of Psalms: 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, 43  Till I make Your enemies Your footstool." ' 44  "Therefore David calls Him 'Lord'; how is He then his Son?"

Jesus Denounces the Scribes

45  Then, in the hearing of all the people, He said to His disciples, 46  "Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, 47  who devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation."
