Luke 20:27-40

This passage from Luke’s gospel has another group challenging Jesus. The Sadducees are wealthy leaders, more conservative in their interpretations of the law. They challenge Jesus about the resurrection in the hope of pulling from him an answer more in line with their beliefs. Jesus does not respond as they hoped but makes clear their lack of understanding of the difference between temporal life and life after the resurrection.

Lord, you are a master teacher. Your wisdom and knowledge draw me even closer to you. I sit at your feet to listen and learn.
