Are you considering hitched to your better half in Heaven?

In Mark chapter 12, Jesus provides a training about wedding which could appear a bit… let’s just state unsatisfactory in the beginning. Some Sadducees started to Jesus and provide him having a situation. Let’s state you can find seven brothers. One gets married and afterwards dies. Therefore his wife marries the next cousin, he then dies. Then she marries the next cousin. He dies, too. And so forth down the line, until she's got were able to marry all seven brothers. The Sadducees ask: during the resurrection, when all increase through the dead, whoever spouse will she be?

The thing that is first understand is this — this isn't actually a concern about wedding. It’s question about eternal life. The Sadducees were A jewish sect that would not rely on life after death. They didn’t have confidence in paradise or hell. And obviously they denied the alternative of the next resurrection, which Jesus preached. This question is supposed to show exactly how ridiculous the thought of the dead rising to eternal life is; it might cause impossible circumstances similar to this where seven resurrected husbands all lay claim towards the exact same spouse.
