|Luke 20:27-40. προσελθόντες δέ τινες τῶν σαδδουκαίων,
οἱ [ἀντι]λέγοντες ἀνάστασιν μὴ εἶναι, ἐπηρώτησαν αὐτὸν λέγοντες, διδάσκαλε,
μωϋσῆς ἔγραψεν ἡμῖν, ἐάν τινος ἀδελφὸς ἀποθάνῃ ἔχων γυναῖκα, καὶ οὗτος
ἄτεκνος ᾖ, ἵνα λάβῃ ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ τὴν γυναῖκα καὶ ἐξαναστήσῃ σπέρμα
τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ. ἑπτὰ οὖν ἀδελφοὶ ἦσαν: καὶ ὁ πρῶτος λαβὼν γυναῖκα ἀπέθανεν
ἄτεκνος: καὶ ὁ δεύτερος καὶ ὁ τρίτος ἔλαβεν αὐτήν, ὡσαύτως δὲ καὶ οἱ
ἑπτὰ οὐ κατέλιπον τέκνα καὶ ἀπέθανον. ὕστερον καὶ ἡ γυνὴ ἀπέθανεν. ἡ
γυνὴ οὖν ἐν τῇ ἀναστάσει τίνος αὐτῶν γίνεται γυνή; οἱ γὰρ ἑπτὰ ἔσχον
αὐτὴν γυναῖκα. καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ αἰῶνος τούτου γαμοῦσιν
καὶ γαμίσκονται, οἱ δὲ καταξιωθέντες τοῦ αἰῶνος ἐκείνου τυχεῖν καὶ τῆς
ἀναστάσεως τῆς ἐκ νεκρῶν οὔτε γαμοῦσιν οὔτε γαμίζονται: οὐδὲ γὰρ ἀποθανεῖν
ἔτι δύνανται, ἰσάγγελοι γάρ εἰσιν, καὶ υἱοί εἰσιν θεοῦ, τῆς ἀναστάσεως
υἱοὶ ὄντες. ὅτι δὲ ἐγείρονται οἱ νεκροὶ καὶ μωϋσῆς ἐμήνυσεν ἐπὶ τῆς βάτου,
ὡς λέγει κύριον τὸν θεὸν ἀβραὰμ καὶ θεὸν ἰσαὰκ καὶ θεὸν ἰακώβ: θεὸς δὲ
οὐκ ἔστιν νεκρῶν ἀλλὰ ζώντων, πάντες γὰρ αὐτῷ ζῶσιν. ἀποκριθέντες δέ
τινες τῶν γραμματέων εἶπαν, διδάσκαλε, καλῶς εἶπας: οὐκέτι γὰρ ἐτόλμων
ἐπερωτᾶν αὐτὸν οὐδέν.
||Luke 20:27-40. Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny
that there is any resurrection; and they asked him, Saying, Master, Moses
wrote unto us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without
children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto
his brother. There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a
wife, and died without children. And the second took her to wife, and he
died childless. And the third took her; and 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 of them is she? for seven had her to wife.
And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and
are given in marriage: But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain
that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are
given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto
the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth
the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said.
And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.
