Dear Friend in the Lord,

Heaven – Faith: In today’s Gospel, the Sadducees, did not believe in the Resurrection, questioned Jesus using the reality of human existence.  When we do not have the gift of faith, we would challenge the Gospel and the Church’s Teachings sceptically.  We are called to seek the Truth with authenticity and dignity.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 12:18-20, 22-25

Some Sadducees – who deny that there is a resurrection – came to Jesus and they put this question to him, ‘Master, Moses prescribed for us that if a man’s brother dies leaving a wife but no child, the man must marry the widow to raise up children for his brother. Now there were seven brothers; the first married a wife and then died leaving no children. And none of the seven left any children. Last of all he woman herself died. Now at the resurrection, when they rise again, whose wife will she be, since she had been married to all seven?’

Jesus said to them, ‘Surely the reason why you are wrong is that you understand neither the scriptures nor the power of God. For when they rise from the dead, men and women do not marry; no, they are like the angels in heaven.’
